Crystal Render is a name that is well known and respected in the culinary world. She is a highly skilled chef with a passion for cooking that is unmatched by anyone in her field. Crystal has accomplished many things throughout her career, and she is revered as an Influential Woman of Greater Cincinnati, Resident chef of the Morgan Angelique Show, Mortar Graduate and a Culinary Arts Graduate from Cincinnati State College.
Her journey in the culinary industry began when she owned her own restaurant. This experience gave her a unique perspective on what it takes to succeed in the highly competitive and demanding field of food service. Her time as a restaurant owner also taught her the importance of using fresh, high-quality ingredients in her dishes, and she has carried this principle with her throughout her career.
Crystal is an Amazon certified vendor, which is a testament to her skill and expertise in the culinary field. She is also a preferred caterer for the Aronoff Center for the Arts, which is a prestigious honor that speaks to her professionalism and the quality of her work. Over the years, she has catered for many high-profile clients, including the Cincinnati Reds, the Cincinnati Ballet, and the Contemporary Arts Center.
One of the most remarkable things about Crystal is her commitment to giving back to her community. She served an incredible 40,000 meals in only a 10 week time period for food insecure children K-18 through the Ohio Summer Foods Program, demonstrating her dedication to using her culinary skills to help those in need. Her tireless work in this area has earned her the respect and admiration of many, and she continues to be a shining example of what it means to be a truly compassionate chef.
For Crystal, cooking is more than just a profession. It is a way of life. She grew up on a farm, where fresh, homegrown food was the foundation of her culinary experiences. Food sustainability was a natural part of her upbringing, as nothing went to waste on the farm. This early exposure to cooking with fresh ingredients and an appreciation for the value of
sustainability has been a driving force in Crystal's career.
Another significant influence on Crystal's cooking style has been her family. With six sisters, one brother, and countless nieces and nephews, Sunday dinners were always grand affairs, with 30 or more people in attendance. Crystal's ability to feed large groups of people for free led her to the realization that she could turn her passion for cooking into a business.
That is where MMC comes into the picture. It started as a way for Crystal to bring her mother's dream of owning a restaurant to life, but along the way, she discovered that it was her true passion. MMC is a reflection of everything that is important to Crystal as a chef - fresh, high-quality ingredients, food sustainability, and a commitment to giving back to the community. The foundation of MMC was built on 3 core pillars: Food… Faith… Family and we believe this has been the catalyst of its success.
As a successful female chef, Crystal Render is an inspiration to many. She is a true role model for aspiring chefs who want to make their mark in the culinary world. Her dedication, passion, and hard work have allowed her to achieve great things, and she continues to be a shining example of what it means to be a truly great chef.
