Tracy Wilk

Lead Chef and Recipe Editor, Recreational Program


Tracy Wilk grew up in Miami, where she sparked a love of baking at a young age that never waned. Instead of sneaking out with friends on the weekends, she encouraged them to bake with her in the kitchen. After earning her bachelor’s degree at the University of Central Florida, Tracy enrolled at the Natural Gourmet Institute, ironically a leader in health-focused cuisine, in New York City. Tracy’s culinary career was shaped at ABC Kitchen, where she focused on farm fresh cuisine. In 2013, she joined the team at David Burke Kitchen, overseeing the pastry program as well as shaping the programs at Burke’s Aspen Kitchen and SaltBrick Tavern. Her innovative desserts have been featured by the NYC Wine & Food Festival and INSIDER, and she was recognized among 40 Restaurant Stars on the Rise in 2017 by FSR Magazine.
