David Jorge is a concrete contractor and father of two from Surrey, B.C. Learning to cook from his mother, celebrity chefs, and trial and error, David loves to cook for his family and friends. Making people happy through food is what inspires him, and is something he is truly passionate about. Aside from cooking for his loved ones, David is heavily involved in raising money through events for the Surrey Food Bank in order to help feed those in his community who are less fortunate. While cooking with his signature bold flavours, you can expect to find David in the kitchen listening to anything by Chromeo or Arcade Fire. He is known for hosting large family-style meals, featuring whole-animal cookery. For David, nothing is impossible when it comes to him and cooking – whether it means raising his own cattle or building his own wood-fired pizza oven and smoker.
Gaining the validation of being one the best home cooks in Canada means the world to David. His food dream is to open a small chef-driven restaurant specializing in family-style dishes.
