Meet Linda Hampsten Fox!

Linda Hampsten Fox, is the creative force and mind behind The Bindery—an all-day bakery, market and eatery in the Lower Highlands neighborhood of Denver. She has over twenty-five years of professional cooking experience and an impressive portfolio of references, including celebrities spanning the likes of Jane Goodall, Michael York, Nancy Pelosi, Dave Matthews, Tom Shadyac, Nic & Helen Foster (from the live radio show E-Town) and institutions such as Blue Sky Bridge, the Excelsior Foundation, the Colorado Music Festival and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Linda has been cooking professionally for much of her life. She perfected her 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 her culinary passion is Mediterranean cuisine, her extensive travels have given her an intimate knowledge of food trends and cultures from all over the world. Through all this, the simple beauty and importance of gathering around the table has become undeniable to her. In recent years, Linda has been exploring the limits of her imagination for clients in the Boulder and Denver area, as well as consulting on projects at home and abroad. Her charisma in the kitchen made her a sought-out asset by a cooking school in Todos Santos, Baja Mexico and also as a menu developer for a string of restaurants in Denver. Meanwhile she has written such exquisite compositions for the plate that she has developed a long list of recurrent clients whose friends, families, and coworkers eagerly await the next event.
