David Kinch is the chef behind the two Michelin starred Manresa restaurant in Santa Cruz, California.
He has worked to develop a 'sense of place' through the food he serves at the restaurant, nursing a strong relationship with Love Apple Farms where much of the restaurant's produce is sourced.
Kinch has an impressive CV and pushes an ingredient led approach when it comes to food - sourcing locally, sustainably and organically - he is a leader in the fine dining scene of America.
