Rising Star Chef Brad Kilgore of Alter - Biography
One of Brad Kilgore’s earliest memories of cooking on his own—back in third grade—was mistaking “tsp. of salt” for “tbsp.” in a brownie recipe. By age 12, he was making pancakes and French toast at a diner in Overland Park, Kansas. Kilgore eventually enrolled in culinary arts classes at Broadmoor Technical Center under chef and mentor Bob Brassard, while working at a local country club. After a trip to Tuscany, Kilgore continued his studies at Johnson & Wales University in Denver, where he worked at restaurant Tante Louise. Graduation called Kilgore once more to Italy to cook in a kitchen in the northern countryside.
