David has successfully passed a background check on MeetAChef.com - Are you looking for a professional, personable, talented cook to create delicious food experiences in your home? If so, we need to talk! I’m David, a former Corporate-American turned chef. After spending years in various leadership roles within the corporate food industry, I made the bold decision to pivot my career towards my lifelong love for cooking. Having left my job as senior manager in 2022 to care for my terminally ill father, I developed a refreshed perspective on life and a renewed focus on my values. And so, after he passed in early 2023, I decided to walk away from a successful food industry career and enrolled at Kendall College in Chicago where I studied the fundamentals of culinary arts and gained practical experience as a Line Cook at Scratchboard Kitchen in Arlington Heights, IL. I currently work for an Argentinian and Italian inspired restaurant focused on open fire cooking, in-house aged steaks, and scratch made pastas. Combining this education and experience with a couple decades of cooking for family and friends, I’m eager to apply my diverse skills, analytical mindset, creative thinking, and industry experience to your culinary needs. I cook a diverse portfolio with an affinity for foods with big flavors that use a variety of spices and herbs. Additionally, I have experience with aspects of nutritional cooking and cooking for those with lactose intolerance and those with changing dietary needs and tastes due to medical issues/treatments.
