About Kirk Warner

Kirk Warner, an independent chef, wine educator and culinary consultant, specializes in delivering customized interactive food and beverage experiences with an emphasis on employee development and team unity. Kirk has designed and delivered cooking and tasting programs in locales as diverse as Santa Fe, San Francisco, Luxembourg, London, and Athens.

A native of Paw Paw, Michigan, Kirk began his culinary career at a young age. In his mother's small bistro adjacent to the family winery, he was both waiting tables, giving tours of the winery and preparing simple bistro fare before he was a teenager. Following a nonlinear path, Kirk earned a BA in English Literature from Albion College and started work toward an MFA in Film and Television Studies from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, he discovered a career in food and wine while working in restaurants throughout the country,traveling extensively and reading every cookbook he could get his hands on. 

Using a decade of experience as an executive chef, where an active kitchen with sizzling food and sharp knives are unforgiving and demand solid communication, in 2006 Kirk began designing cooking challenges for businesses to emulate what he learned in professional kitchens: nurturing a creative mindset within a group dynamic, effective communication while busy, improving cross-cultural communication, problem solving in a fluid environment, and community building.

Recognized in Food & Wine Magazine, Travel & Leisure, USA Today, Kirk’s Traveling Kitchen, continues to create new entertaining, hands-on cooking events where teams of participants collaborate on various real world business challenges in the context of an active working kitchen while networking and preparing their own
