Chef Allen began cooking with his mother as a young boy. Being of German immigrant parents, he was exposed to European cooking, as well as hunting and fishing, which played a key role in shaping his love for the outdoors and in forming the cooking style which he has developed over his lifetime.
As a young adult, Sternweiler was already immersing himself in the restaurant world. From 1980 to 1986, he began to work in local restaurants as a dishwasher and prep cook in his hometown of Fairview Park, near Cleveland, Ohio.
After graduating from Johnson & Whales, he moved to Chicago to take a position at the highly reputable restaurant, Printer’s Row. Under chef and owner Michael Foley and his father, Robert, Sternweiler began to make his mark as a young rising chef. Starting as a line cook, Sternweiler moved up the ranks quickly. In one year he rose from cook, to lead line cook, to sous chef and became head chef in 1989. He worked for the Foley clan until 1995.
