Dennis has been baking since 1965 and is renowned as a Certified Executive Pastry Chef, Master Baker, and is also a member of the American Academy of Chefs. Dennis was named “Chef of the Year” in 1987. He has won numerous gold medals in culinary competitions, including “People’s Choice” and “Best of Show.” In 2006 he was inducted into the Colorado Chefs Hall of Fame.
Although he is allergic to bees (he could die from one sting), Dennis is an advocate for our pollinator friends and in a key scene in the film; he accepts a hive from The Bee Guru. A tad eccentric and a colorful character – Dennis fits right in to the wild and crazy cast of Bee People!
Asked why he would give bees a home at his bakery, Dennis replied, “I live on the edge, okay?” Dennis – don’t get stung!
