My Journey to Your Table
Hello there! My name is David Kirchhoff and thanks for visiting. Born and raised in Missouri I knew I always wanted to be a chef from a very young age and helping my grandmother in her kitchen was my inspiration. I graduated culinary school with honors in Kansas City and was working at an upscale country club as a prep cook, while also cooking private, executive lunches for a local pasta company named The American Italian Pasta Company. I moved to northern Missouri and worked at a small American-Italian restaurant while still cooking the executive lunches for the pasta company for a couple of years before moving again to the great state of Texas.
Texas is where I hit my culinary stride. I worked at a casual-fine dining Italian restaurant where we made everything from scratch, including multiple types of pasta, bread, desserts, and more. I started as a saute cook working the line and, over the course of five years, worked my way to Executive Chef. Along with being a full-service restaurant we also did a ton of catering, and the type of catering we did was extensive. Any type of menu, cuisine, theme the customer wanted, we did it. We catered the catering exclusively to every customer, and we would make as much as we could by scratch, and it didn't matter if it was for 20 people or 2000. After five years in the Lone Star State, I now reside in the land of Beer and Cheese, Wisconsin! I'm at a point in my culinary career where I want to go out on my own and offer food and service that I can call my own. Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about my culinary journey, and if you decide to allow me into your home to cook, I promise you that I will do everything in my power to make that decision one you'll never regret.
