NEWS: Voyage Denver Interview with Chef Dan
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dan Witherspoon.
Dan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I walked into a French restaurant in 1979 and asked them for a job. I nagged them until they hired me. A year and a half later, I interviewed with Henri Bergmans the man who would be my mentor at his restaurant La Maison Henri. This would start a six year relationship that taught me classic cooking techniques, kitchen management and a whole host of life lessons. I finished the job as his Executive Sous Chef.
