Meet Chef David Rose

But one thing is for certain; whenever Chef David Rose is around… you’ll find plenty of great food and laughter! Born in New Jersey to two chef parents, David always had an adventurous, curious, and diverse palate. If it smelled good and looked good, chances are it would get eaten.

Chef David Rose

Like a truffle pig, he sniffed out his culinary interests, and it led him to Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, where he ultimately settled for the last 20 years. He identifies as a Southern chef, but also creatively reinterprets classic Southern fare by incorporating the refinement of his French culinary training, along with his signature bold flavors and the occasional flair from his family’s Jamaican recipes. Cooking and eating is David’s life…literally!
