Chef Dave Burke realized his passion for cooking at a young age. His informal training came from cooking with his mom, especially on holidays. From picking out produce and fresh ingredients to spending the whole day in the kitchen, Chef Burke quickly realized being in the kitchen was his calling.

His dreams were realized when he graduated from Scottsdale Culinary Institute in 2002. Chef Burke perfected his craft at some of Scottsdale’s most popular venues and ultimately opened the city’s JW Marriott. Looking to diversify his skillset with front of house experience, Chef Burke began what would progress into a twelve year tenure with Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse. Eventually his work with Flemings brought Chef Burke to California, where he worked his way through the ranks.

Some of his previous accolades include winning the Coachella Valley Chef Fight and receiving the Fleming’s Partner of the Year award in 2013.
