The man known as Chef is the head chef at Guardia Castle in 600 A.D. in Chrono Trigger. His brother is the Knight Captain, and they don't get along very well.
While at Guardia Castle, Crono sees first-hand the conflict between the Chef and his brother.
As the war with Magus' army escalates, the Chef gives jerky to Crono and his party to take to the soldiers at Zenan Bridge.
The Chef is present when Crono's party meets with King Guardia XXI after the Rainbow Shell has been recovered.
