Executive Chef

Beth Jones came into cooking later in life than most in her field. After majoring in Russian, International Relations and History at Cornell College, she pursued a law degree at William Mitchell. Realizing that law was not her true calling, she followed her passion for cooking and began at the bottom as a prep cook at the No Wake Cafe on Harriet Island. Beth came to the Campus Club in September of 2006 after several years of cooking at Minneapolis' premier local foods restaurant, Lucia's Restaurant and Wine Bar. Prior to Lucia's Beth was a pastry chef at the Birchwood Cafe, as well as a food writer, publishing articles in various Twin Cities publications. In her time at the Campus Club, she has transformed the menu and cooking style by sourcing local, seasonal and organic foods, and using scratch cooking methods. Beth is the author of the Campus Club Centennial Cookbook, written in 2011.
