Gourmet meals for the homeless

Photo credit and Interview by Carolyn Eicher

Imagine trying to prepare a meal for 100 individuals twice a week!  Although Chef Dave cut his chops in some of the finest establishments in LA., he now proudly dons the title "Shelter Chef" as a part-time cook for CAPSLO's Maxine Lewis Homeless Shelter.  He shops weekly at the Food Bank's Oceano warehouse, selecting fresh ingredients, some of it donated and rescued by GleanSLO, all the while thinking of the nutritional needs of the clients.

During a recent interview Chef Dave recounts, "whether for fine dining or the shelter the focus is the same, on people enjoying food."

Enjoy a taste of Chef Dave's gourmet cuisine at the upcoming Winemaker's Dinner: Celebrating the Harvest with GleanSLO on Saturday, May 2nd!
