Janos  Wilder at Downtown Kitchen

Bio

Janos Wilder began cooking as a teenager in a local pizza parlor and continued cooking throughout high school and college in numerous restaurants in Northern California, Nashville, Tennessee and Boulder, Colorado. Initially his foray into the restaurant world was fueled equally by an interest in food that developed into a full-fledged passion and the practical need to find a job. Working his way up through restaurants came easily to Wilder and he used his experience as a means to support himself while attending the University of Colorado and later while getting a degree in political science from UC Berkeley.
