Executive Chef ~ Jay Gundy


Born and raised in Detroit, Chef Jay Gundy has worked at many fine restaurants including, Tribute in Farmington Hills, The Historic Whitney restaurant in Detroit’s Midtown district and Birmingham’s Forte. He earned his first head chef position at Fiddleheads Restaurant in 2005.

Gundy is very active in Wild Foraging and considers himself extremely fortunate to have access to everything that Michigan has to offer.  The menu at Cork changes seasonally based on his discoveries and imagination.

Other things that he does in his spare time include, teaching Butchery classes at the Davisburg 4H Fair, consulting other small  businesses in the trade and hosting pop up dinners and events across the Metro Detroit area. Prior to coming to Cork 5 years ago, Gundy opened Birmingham’s Cafe Via and the original Townhouse Bistro.
