While attending the Sheridan Technical Center’s Culinary Arts program, Stample found a mentor in the late Chef Odis Herring, a detail-oriented leader who instilled a sense of pride in putting 100% into everything one does – especially volunteer work. He now honors Herring’s legacy by devoting his time to bettering the lives of underprivileged kids.
As a personal and private chef, he has wowed celebrities with his calling-card cuisine – a fusion of Southern soul-food
with a spicy Caribbean flavor. These are traits he picked up from watching his family with Caribbean roots create a wide range of exotic dishes. He has now committed himself to bettering the community as a Culinary Philanthropist.
As Culinary Director of CREaM, Stample was responsible for coordinating and ensuring the success of four of Rachael Ray’s signature Burger Bash events and cooking up rave-worthy eats for Miami’s hippest party, Ultra Music Festival.
Chef Stample’s most impressive career achievement to date is teaching and mentoring at-risk youth at EdVenture Charter School in Lantana, Florida. Stample taught his students how to be creative and innovative, while taking ownership of their lives. He spent every day making sure that his students felt proud of their achievements. He worked tirelessly to instill the values of personal responsibility and personal accountability in his students. During his tenure, he encountered many students that didn’t have access to hot meals at home. Not only was he able to provide daily meals for them, he taught them how to cook for themselves, and was able to provide information about community resources.
Chef David is currently the Chef & Health Educator at Ruby’s place, supported housing for formally homeless adults. He is an
advocate and volunteer for No Kid Hungry.
