CHEF DAVE KROG

Dave-Stories.jpg

Chef Dave Krog moved to Memphis in ‘92, and soon began an apprenticeship under Lynn Kennedy at La Tourelle where he later became Sous Chef. David went on to be Executive Chef at Madidi in Clarksdale, MS. This was the beginning of a career that would set him on the path to restaurant ownership and becoming a respected teacher and leader in the culinary community. Krog’s final Executive Chef position was held at Interim Restaurant & Bar.

There he was given the opportunity to build relationships with guests, guide young chefs into higher management positions and Executive roles in other companies, and most importantly, this is where he met the family that would change the course of his future in the restaurant industry.

With a heavy heart, David left Interim to devote time to opening his own business. While in pursuit of his dream, and working as a private chef, the idea for his pop-up Gallery was born. The six-course, seven wine tasting became the inspiration for dory, Dave and Amanda Krog’s restaurant on Brookhaven Circle, that opened in 2021. (If you ask their 4 year old, Doris Marie, it belongs to her.) Dory has successively become the first tasting menu only restaurant in Memphis, TN and strives to always intentionally source ingredients, work closely with farmers and local vendors, and to treat everything from the smallest pea to the biggest pig with the respect that it deserves.

Through leadership, with heart and soul behind what he does, Krog teaches and grows aspiring chefs- with the hopes of them becoming talented, compassionate team members that will ensure change in the industry standard.

 

 Amanda Krog is a 4th generation Memphian, mother of two, and the backbone of the Krog family. From wife, mother, and coach, to finance, marketing, and event coordinator, she has proven herself more than capable of wearing all the hats. Her passion for service to her family and community has no end.

 

Amanda has a long love affair with the restaurant industry, spending time becoming proficient in a variety of positions. In addition to heading up overall operations of dory, the Krogs’ restaurant on Brookhaven Circle, that has successfully become the first restaurant in Memphis to exclusively serve a prix fixe "tasting" menu, she has taken on a new venture with her granola company, Nine Oat One. What began as a healthy snack and cooking project with Doris, Amanda and David’s daughter, has become a favorite for many. Amanda's granola can be found in some of your favorite local staples, (all over her home), and under the chocolate Truffle mignardise at dory. Over the past two years, with the help of her community, Krog’s philanthropic endeavor, a "Nine Oat One-derful" Christmas has raised money for multiple families. The fundraiser provides gifts on children's wish lists, Christmas dinner, and necessities boxes for each family, aiming to add, at minimum, one family per year. 

 

Her intention through both businesses, motherhood, and leadership, is to contribute positively to the industry and her family, stay genuine, and provide the best experience for every patron.
