David Starnes


I started cooking when I was four years old and with the help of my mother, I developed a passion for all forms of cooking. Growing up, I was always learning from my mother and my grandmother. I also grew up watching the local PBS channel watching the Galloping Gourmet, Julia Child, Martin Yan, and the Ragin Cajun to learn more techniques and various new styles of cooking. Recent, I was able to achieve a lifelong dream of learning classical baking techniques and was able to graduate with honors. I look forward to the next step of my journey into the culinary world by going to France for an internship.
