David Burke

Widely known as a top contender on Bravo’s Top Chef that achievement simply scratches the surface of Chef David Burke’s many achievements. Dig a little deeper and you will see his rock star fame rests solidly on his mastery of the French technique, New World innovation, imagination and his, scrappy, never-quit attitude. And there is a tsunami of awards and credits to prove his culinary chops. Chef Burke, considered a leading pioneer in American cooking, was named Executive Chef of the legendary River Café at 26, an amazing feat in and of itself. Still, the accolades kept coming. A graduate of the CIA and student of the Ecole Lenotre Pastry School in France, Chef Burke earned a coveted three-star New York Times review while at the River Café. Then, Japan’s Nippon Award for Excellence, next the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Diplome d’Honneur – Chef Burke is the only American to ever win this - thus cementing his reputation as a leading international chef. There’s more, lots more, like the Robert Mondavi Award of Excellence and two nominations for James Beard Best Chef New York City and he was inducted into the James Beard Foundation Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America.
