About the Gourmet Spoon

Welcome to a whole new world of personalized and interactive culinary experiences. The goal of The Gourmet Spoon is to provide great food, knowledge and camaraderie through an exciting menu of culinary services.

In 1998, Chef Dan Witherspoon left the world of the working executive chef in the restaurant and the private club kitchen to incorporate The Witherspoon Group, and began doing business as The Gourmet Spoon. TGS applies years of culinary experience to cooking classes and workshops for all ages and levels of expertise, custom gourmet catering, menu planning and implementation, culinary demonstrations, and corporate team building.

In the summer of 2011,  The Witherspoon Group purchased The Seasoned Chef Cooking School, where Chef Dan has been teaching for the last seven years. The Seasoned Chef Cooking School has been in existence since 1993, and has won multiple Readers Choice Awards in 5280’s Top of the Town. Our goal is to continue to provide top grade cooking classes for home cooks with a host of fabulous instructors.

TGS also offers private Instructional Workshops and Culinary Parties to provide education and entertainment and take the fear and mystery out of making delicious meals. Our Culinary Team Building activities improve communication and company relations and integrate team spirit back into the workplace. Our custom Gourmet Catering simplifies and adds excitement to life’s personal and business events.

The Gourmet Spoon integrates the world’s cuisine with its roots based in Western European tradition. These time-honored techniques never go out of style and are the foundation of all of today’s contemporary cuisines.

In 2008, Chef Dan was named Best Personal Chef by Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Magazine and is currently the “Recipe Doctor” for Indulge Magazine.
