About the Artist Facilitator

A 20-year restaurant chef, David Cook discovered the intriguing nature of local cuisine when he tasted his first bite of kimchi. That was 30 years ago when his parents took him on to a local Korean restaurant in Seoul. Being the son of a Retired US Army Colonel, David was very fortunate to move all around the world and experience many different cuisines.  Since then, David has explored many more local cuisines and cooking methods throughout the Caribbean and U.S., with particular interest in learning how different regions use herbs and spices to create exciting takes on traditional favorites. Having studied at the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University, David’s formal training underpins his practical experience and creative flair for creating dishes that make the most of locally-sourced ingredients combined with herbs and spices one may not expect.  Now, David Co-owns Gather Food Studio with his amazing girlfriend/business partner in Old Colorado City, and his mission is to put a career’s worth of information back into the community.
