30-Minute Meal Recipe Mastermind & DB Executive Chef

Dale Ford

You might say Chef Dale’s kitchen training started at birth – his mother was a professional cook who he eventually cooked alongside in four restaurants. Professional southern cooks and his long-time membership in the American Culinary Federation have continued to broaden his work over the years. Chef Dale’s vision for food is rooted in understanding and supporting local agriculture. At Devils Backbone, you’ll find him cooking up ideas on how to utilize what’s grown right here a Basecamp in beautiful Nelson County.



We’ve partnered up with our local food pantries and food bank to create delicious recipes utilizing ingredients that are typically distributed to clients this time of year. We invite nonprofits across our community to download these recipes and distribute them to their own clients. Together, we can help feed those in need this holiday season.
