Chef Devin Spear's culinary journey is as rich in flavor and exploration as Colorado Springs itself. Following his bachelor degree in Nutrition from Texas State University, Chef Devin attended The Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley. Now in wine country, he not only catered Francis Coppola's 80th birthday celebration, but Chef Devin also placed Top 4 in the Annual Napa Valley Food and Wine pairing competition in 2018. After culinary school, Chef Devin honed his craft in a 2 Michelin starred kitchen, Marea, under critically acclaimed Chef Michael White and Chef Molly Nickerson. Utilizing every opportunity, Chef Devin also owned and operated a fried chicken business reinforcing his burning desire for the hospitality industry.
