David Gross PANZANO RESTAURANT, DENVER, CO JULY 6 & JULY 7
Chef David Gross graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with a Professional Culinarian Certificate that he describes as the best decision he ever made, “not only because of what I learned there, but the connections and networking that I did with the culinary instructors and fellow classmates.” Natural career progression landed David at Table 45 in his first sous chef slot where he began to appreciate the creation of menu items, combinations of flavors and presentations that tell a story both in flavor and style. Much of the produce came from a farm down the road from the restaurant where David explored the grower’s end of the business. He moved on from Table 45 to sous chef positions at L’Albatros and Urban Farmer Steakhouse in Cleveland before heading west to Colorado. David works quietly and efficiently in his kitchen and expects others to do the same. After work you can find him hanging out at Euclid Hall.
