Our Culinary Team


Dave DeBrot - IL & WI - Full Time Corporate Chef - With nearly 20 years in the culinary industry, Dave DeBrot has tried on a few different kitchens.

A Michigan native, he learned about banquets and cooking for crowds with his first kitchen job at the Amway Hotel in Grand Rapids. From there, a connection through a pastry instructor brought him to Milwaukee to work with Sanford D'Amato at Coquette Café and Sanford.

And it's here that he's found his niche as the chef du cuisine for the senior living community at Eastcastle Place, 2505 E. Bradford.

Striving to meet the dietary needs of 200 seniors, DeBrot is part of a changing field where restaurant-style service and meals supplant boring cafeteria fare. He and his culinary staff take on the challenges of aging palates in need of low-cholesterol, sodium-free and diabetic meals every day.

Working with residents to include herbs grown in the on-site garden, he also relies on local farms for produce, yogurt, milk, cheese and butter. Popular dishes on his menus include Ukrainian borscht and smoked pork tenderloin. Taking into consideration a growing need for gluten-free options, he recently created a gluten-free flourless chocolate cake that was recognized by the Milwaukee Consortium on Aging.
