One of my favorite restaurants in Denver is Spuntino, and their Chef de Cuisine Austin Christina Ferrell Nickel is absolutely killing it. Funny thing about Spuntino – They cook in an electric kitchen. That takes guts, grit, and finesse.
Chef Austin Nickel was born in Denver, and spent time her childhood in both Colorado and Indiana. Inspired by cooking with her dad growing up, in High School she joined ProStart in Indiana. She decided to move back to Denver for college and attend Johnson and Wales University, where she graduated with an associate’s degree in Culinary Arts.
Let’s welcome chef Austin to Chef or Death!!!
