Gov. Mike Huckabee lovingly describes Don Bingham as “the most disgustingly talented person I know”.
Don’s creative culinary skills have made him not only the best-known, but the most beloved and imitated chef in the state of Arkansas. Beyond his skills in the kitchen, he is a gifted communicator in word, song and through his dazzling ability on the piano.
He is an award-winning, innovative Chef who has been active in the entertainment and hospitality industry for many years.
Don is a former Arkansas Chef of the Year, owner and operator of Zinzendorf’s Restaurant, and Administrator and Executive Chef during the ten years of the Huckabee Administration at the Governor’s Mansion. Don continues to enjoy the world of the culinary arts and has appeared on The 700 Club, Public Broadcasting Host of The ABC’s of Cooking, and currently on Channel 7, KATV – Good Morning Arkansas.
Having recently lost 100 pounds, Don is passionate about cooking healthy meals without sacrificing flavor or taste. He and his wife, Nancy, have authored two cookbooks. Don’s other passion is worship. He has released four, instrumental piano albums and is currently working on a book titled “Return To His Glory”.
Don is married to Nancy Bingham, and together they have five adult children and seven grandchildren.
