Love of cooking has been a singularly influential feature of Jonathan Dunn’s life since he was a child. Encouraged from an early age to indulge his desire to create in the kitchen, at the age of twelve Jonathan transitioned from years of cooking dinners for his hungry brothers to the more demanding food service industry, where he immediately developed a love for culinary arts and food service.
