River and Woods is chef/partner Daniel Asher’s newest passion project. Daniel’s obsession with local agriculture, sustainable sourcing and food justice has been his focus for over two decades. As the former culinary director of The Edible Beats Group, one of the most successful hospitality brands in the region, Daniel helped to define true farm-to-table cuisine in Denver at Root Down, Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox and Vital Root.
Chef Daniel was a pioneer in the natural foods movement in the Midwest, founding an organic catering company and restaurant consulting firm in 2004. His recipes and philosophies have been featured in national publications, and he has been a promotional rep for major food companies.
Eco-conscious cooking is his passion and he finds the bounty of Colorado’s wonderful terroir incredibly provocative. Chef Daniel is a certified Raw Foods Chef from the Living Light Culinary Institute in California, a US Chef Ambassador for Albert Bartlett, co-chair for the Chefs Collaborative Colorado Chapter, a board member of EatDenver, and the recipient of the 2015 Philanthropist Award from the Colorado Restaurant Association.
River and Woods is the culmination of his experience and passions, an expression of the joy and inspiration that comes from gathering at the table to share real, thoughtfully prepared food.
