Chef David Rose was raised with a diverse and curious palate. Born in New Jersey to two chef parents, his culinary interest led him to enroll in Le Cordon Bleu Culinary College (Tucker, GA), where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. Living in Atlanta for close to twenty years, Chef Rose finds inspiration in his surroundings and identifies as a southern chef. He 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.
David is a Food Network/TV personality, Omaha Steaks Executive Chef/Spokesperson, and serves as a national brand ambassador for Nissan USA and Big Green Egg; hosting the first virtual Big Green Egg: EGGtoberfest in 2020. He appeared as a finalist on Food Network Star (Season 13), cooking head to head with Bobby Flay and fielding praise from Giada de Laurentiis. Rose regularly appears on Food Network, Good Morning America, the Today Show, Home & Family, and various national morning shows. As a special events chef & culinary content creator, Chef Rose works with many high-profile brands and professional clientele. Outside of the kitchen, David continues to draw culinary inspiration from his frequent international travels.
In the words of Chef David: “Food is life…. It not only feeds the body, but it nourishes the soul. To know me is to taste my cooking.”
