The People

Patrick Murphy - Chef de cuisine
Patrick Murphy is chef de cuisine at Le Reve Patisserie and Café in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. A Milwaukee native, Murphy cut his teeth in the restaurant industry in a variety of different dining environments, from bar fare to fine dining. He went on to earn his culinary degree from MATC, and began looking for new opportunities to hone his skills and widen his palette. This perseverance and enthusiasm paid off, landing him an apprenticeship with award winning chef Sanford D’Amato. During this time he continued to learn, and his passion for cooking became especially focused on French cuisine. Murphy’s love of French food and cooking led to positions as line cook at award-winning French bistro Coquette Café in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, as well as savory chef at artisan bakery Harlequin Bake Shop and city mainstay Sanford Restaurant on Milwaukee’s lower East Side.
