Coworker Corner: Jeff D.


Jeff D. is a fairly recent addition to our Lewes, DE store, but his warm personality and skill with our demos has made him a fast favorite of our regular guests. Learn more about him below!

Q: Tell us your Kitchen & Company story.
A: I have been with Kitchen & Company for 1 1/2 years. I applied at the Lewes location because I was looking to work where I have always enjoyed shopping. I could feel the energy of the store, everyone was always helpful – that’s not something you get in most retail stores. The best part of my job is the opportunity to grill outside on demo days. It is my happy place.

Q: What is your favorite food to cook?
A: My favorite food is Caribbean jerk chicken. I enjoy cooking on my Kamado Joe year round. I have learned some really great techniques and recipes from doing the demos. My favorite would be the grilled wings or the pineapple & sausage skewers using the Fire Wire.

Q: What is your favorite tool in the kitchen?
A: My favorite tool in the kitchen is the OXO pineapple slicer and the onion holder.

Q: What is a fun fact no one would typically know about you?
A: I enjoy downhill skiing. Hands down my favorite sport.

Q: If you could have any person over for dinner, who would it be and what would you cook for them?
A: Shannon, John…all of my co-workers. I enjoy entertaining and would love to have the crew over. I would make them grilled salmon, steamed veggies and baked potatoes.

Q: Tell us about your favorite guest interaction
A: I savor the guest that isn’t quite sure what they are looking for and rely on me to suggest the perfect tool.

Be sure to stop by for one of our weekend demos to meet Jeff and sample some delicious food!
