Chef712, known simply as Chef, was a Let's Play commentator and a former active member of the defunct MindCrack Fan Server. He joined the server in September 2012 after winning a build contest held by dannychopsnz. After the shutdown of the Fan Server, Chef continued to do Let's Plays. On 11 August 2013, Chef lost his fight with cancer.
Chef's first job was in IT fixing poker machines. On his first day on the job, his boss gave him the task of replacing motherboards. He kept frying the motherboards. His boss called him "Chef" because no one cooked motherboards like he did. When he started his YouTube channel, he chose the Swedish Chef muppet to go with his name. 712 was his date of birth.

Before the 1.5 map reset, Chef had a plot in the Greenwood neighborhood of Blockhaven. He discovered an island by boat and named it "Cresent Bay Island" due to its shape. The location can be accessed through the Purple tunnel in the Nether. He had planned to build a hotel into the ravine. Chef lived in the "western-themed" town in the most recent map and had built a large saloon there. Chef participated in Fan Server UHC in Seasons 7 and 8.
