Chef and Tell with Corey Cunningham from Baur's Ristorante

Corey Cunningham Baur's Ristorante 1512 Curtis Street 303-534-4842

Corey Cunningham has cooked for Bill Cosby, former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, NASCAR and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- and he also once gave a cigarette to Queen Latifah. "Cooking for Bush was wild," recalls Cunningham, the executive chef at Baur's Ristorante. "There was a posse of Secret Service standing next to me and looking over my shoulder the entire time I was cooking, and they insisted on tasting everything I made. All that, and I never even got to meet Bush."
