David Goldman (Executive Chef/Co-Producer)
David grew up cutting his teeth in a host of restaurants up and down the Americas. He settled down in the greater NYC area, and began looking for ways to feed hungry people outside of the restaurant model. After learning from stints in the food truck, pop up and private chef worlds, he began to draw from performance art as a way to draw the eater in and make them engage with their food. He is excited to cook for shake and bake, but this is his first time acting, so go easy!
