Chef Source was founded in 1999 by Roger Kreager. There was a huge void in the marketplace for gourmet specialty food items. Chefs were looking for unique, hard-to-find, top-quality items from all over the world to help them with their creative menus. We listened to the needs of our customers and sought out these types of products for them. Today we have over 2,500 items to choose from. We are a local family-owned specialty foods company that is focused on the needs of culinary professionals. We promise to provide you with hard-to-find, top-quality specialty food products, tremendous service, industry, and product knowledge to assist you in your operations, along with a unique learning opportunity to learn from some of the most skilled Chefs in the industry in our demonstration kitchen.
Chef Source would like to thank all of our customers for all of the years of faithful patronage. It has been an honor to serve all of you.

Chef Ben RobisonPastry Chef | Chartreuse Detroit, MI

Now I purchase appetizers, tart shells, desserts, fruit purees, pomodorino tomatoes, olives, truffles, cake mixes, etc. I get excited every time I go to their office, wondering what they are going to show me today or even better when they come to my place and show new items designated for my business. I will sometimes go to pick up one or two items and leave with samples for future menus. I’m like a...read more
