Warners' Stellian Chris Mungin The Dapper Chef

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

An appliance is something that will last 10 or more years. Because it’s a purchase you live with for so long, I enjoy helping consumers find exactly what they want to turn their house into a home.

What is your favorite appliance, and why?

I really like the Frigidaire kitchen package. As a private chef, I enjoy how many accessories and features you get all in a budget-friendly price point.

Tell me more about your private chef business:

The Dapper Chef is an amalgamation of my culinary experience and wanting to share that with people. More than anything, I want to help people love food. I started cooking seriously when I went to college and missed my mom’s cooking. I couldn’t make it home very often, so I decided I would have to cook for myself. During the holidays, my friends would throw me $10 each and I would prepare three-course holiday meals that made them a little less homesick.

After college, I studied culinary arts at the Art Institute in Minneapolis. Afterward, I traveled around Southeast Asia exploring the cuisine. Today I host dinner parties in my home or travel to customers’ homes when they want a private chef. My side business ties in well with working at Warners’ Stellian. Great chefs need great appliances, and I love talking cooking techniques with customers!

What about the dapper part?

I tend to be a dapper dresser. My main style icons are my dad, who perfectly captures that smooth suaveness of the ‘70s, and André 3000.

What would your dream kitchen look like?

I would have 6 burners with a Vent-a-Hood range hood over top, a convection oven, marble top island, big butcher block and Sub-Zero fridge.

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Difficult question for a foodie, but I have fallen hard for the tortas at Tavial Grill in Saint Paul.
