Christopher’s is pleased to introduce Chef Don Warfe, their new head dinner chef, and invite you to a very special Meet the Chef Dinner on Wednesday, January 20th. Formerly of Trolley Stop and Zetland Street, Chef Don will be preparing a three-course menu of modern, healthy, winter comfort fare from 5:00 to 9:00pm and personally greeting each table that orders it.
“As a chef, I’m focused on using fresh, local, seasonal ingredients. That’s what I’m passionate about” explains Chef Don regarding an approach he describes as innovate, creative culinary art steeped in traditional techniques. “It’s important to set high standards and meet the expectations of customers while also offering cutting edge meals.”
Indeed, Chef Don arrives at Christopher’s with an impressive background, having trained with some of America’s top chefs in Philadelphia, New York and Colorado before returning to his hometown of Dayton, OH to be close to family. He describes many adventures, perhaps highlighted by a stint as Chef Consultant for the television show Kitchen Nightmares with Chef Gordon Ramsey.
“I take pride in knowing I do something well” Chef Don continues. “Fresh, healthy and local cooking often takes more investment of time and energy, but it is worth it to create a higher quality, more nutritious product for customers. Ingredients are tools for culinary art, much like a painter’s paints or musician’s instruments, and cooking is my craft.”
