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, and he is known for his work in helping define true farm-to-table cuisine in Denver at Root Down, Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox and Vital Root. His recipes and philosophies have been featured in national publications, and he has been a promotional rep for major food companies.
Chef Daniel is a certified Raw Foods Chef from the Living Light Culinary Institute in California, a US Chef Ambassador for Albert Bartlett, cochair 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.
