Chef Wave Kasprzak is a Madison, Wisconsin, area master chef and restaurateur renowned for his innovative seasonal menu blending Southwestern, Mexican, and Asian flavors with classic European techniques.

After being introduced to the Madison restaurant industry as a teenager by his mother (a restaurant manager), Wave quickly began to apprentice under some of the most prominent chefs and restaurants in Madison, including Deb & Lola's, Quivey's Grove and the famous L'Étoile. From these prestigious establishments, Chef Wave developed a broad repertoire of diverse culinary techniques.

He uses those skills in creating exclusive entrées, appetizers, sides and sauces for The Tender Filet, just as he does for his own discerning clientele. Wave serves the same superior steaks and seafood that are offered in The Tender Filet catalog, and shares his culinary skills through many sold-out classes and workshops.
