Another Former Google Chef Defecting to Apple

Two months ago, Food Gal reported that Nate Keller, former executive chef at Google’s Mountain View headquarters, had moved to Google’s Bridges cafe near San Francisco’s Embarcadero. But that gig didn’t last long, as he up and quit before he’d even gotten his chef jacket buttoned.

Now, the word is out on his new whereabouts. Keller is heading to Apple in Cupertino, according to sources. He will be joining his former compatriot, John Dickman, who left as global food services director for Google in March to join Apple.

Mmm, me thinks Apple must be sweetening the deal with plenty of stock certificates, and a lifetime supply of iPhones and iPods to lure so much corporate culinary talent. One thing’s for sure, Google’s now going to have to work harder to hold on to its claim of having the gourmet cafeteria with the mostest.

    Eventually they should do an “Iron Chef” style competition between the two kitchens. With Carolyn Jung as judge.

    Oooh, I’d totally be up for that! And Nate, I nominate you to be the “chairman” who bites into the yellow bell pepper to start off all the action. ;)

    OK, as long as I get to do Alton’s play by play.

    You’re on, Moe. Now, who should we get to play the arrogant, finicky judge (you all know who I mean. Hah)?
