David Gillespie


David trained to be a professional chef back in the 80's. He believes that if you are interested in pursuing this industry, you need to be very enthusiastic. When he began his career, ‘nouvelle cuisine' did not exist, and now there are even more exciting culinary changes on the horizon. David enjoys being part of a constantly evolving industry, and helping his students graduate to bigger and better things.
