Linda Hampsten Fox

Chef and Founder, The Bindery

I have been cooking professionally for much of my life, though the seed was first planted many years before, by my mother. My most evocative memories of growing up happened around the dinner table, and if you weren’t at the table then you were in the kitchen. I perfected my craft while apprenticing with chefs in Switzerland, Italy and France from the hotel kitchens on the Cote d’Azur to precious vineyards in Tuscany and mountain chalets in Switzerland. While my culinary passion is Mediterranean cuisine, my extensive travels have given me an intimate knowledge of food trends and cultures from all over the world.
In recent years, I have been exploring the limits of my imagination for clients in the Boulder and Denver area, as well as consulting on projects at home and abroad.

In the midst of The Bindery Ltd opening, I am also on the cusp of releasing my first full length cookbook. Born out of my passion for cooking, and actualized with the inception of the Bindery, it is a collection of recipes that carry my readers from my mother’s kitchen, to the hills of Tuscany, into the hearth of the Bindery’s ovens on a personal journey to encounter intimacy with food.
