Chef Keegan Gerhard

Chef and owner of D Bar Restaurant in Denver, Keegan Gerhard has had a lifelong love affair with OREO Cookies. Named one of the nation’s top 10 pastry chefs of 2002 and 2004 by both Chocolatier and Pastry Arts & Design magazines, Chef Keegan has been featured on TV many times including appearances on “Great Chefs of America,” CNN, HGTV, DIY and most notably as host and head judge of over 200 episodes of Food Network’s “Food Network Challenge” and “Last Cake Standing” series. He also served as technical advisor to Team USA for the 2001 Pastry World Cup, which brought home the gold medal, and in 2012, was honored with a Doctorate of Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University.

As a celebrated pastry chef, Chef Keegan has an enthusiastic but controlled approach to pastries—and there's nothing he loves more than an opportunity to incorporate his favorite cookies into his art.
