Hi. I'm Dave.
I'm the executive chef for a company that mostly sells juice and smoothies, but my staff and I make pre-packaged salads, noodle bowls, and other health food items that are prepared in commercial kitchens and distributed to our 8 (soon to be 9, 10, 11...) shop locations. Although I don't personally follow any kind of restrictive diet, the niche I've fallen into as a professional chef is one that caters to people who exclude certain foods from their diets. Currently, my menu is vegan, largely raw, and mostly gluten free, but soon we are going to be adding animal proteins and doing paleo dishes. I enjoy working within dietary parameters because it forces me to be creative and is a catalyst for ingenuity. I look forward to discussing all kinds of food with you guys.
