About Sam Fore 
Sam Fore is a Sri Lankan-American chef and recipe developer based in Lexington, Kentucky. Her pop up, Tuk Tuk Sri Lankan Bites, crisscrosses the country to bring her Sri Lanka meets the South dishes to diners far and wide. She started the pop up in 2016, after traditional Sri Lankan brunches in her home outgrew her dining room. Fore’s cooking is a reflection of her Sri Lankan upbringing in the American South; her dishes include her spin on Southern classics as well as new riffs on her family's time-tested recipes. Her recipes can be found in multiple national publications and across the web — her take on tomato pie graced the cover of Food & Wine in 2019. She was named one of Plate Magazine’s Chefs to Watch (2018), was one of Southern Living’s inaugural Cooks of the Year (2020) and was named one of Taste of the South’s Taste50 (2022). In 2021 she joined the cast of Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street, which airs nationally on PBS stations. In 2023, Fore was honored by the James Beard Foundation Awards as a Finalist for Best Chef: Southeast. Fore opened her Tuk Tuk Snack Shop in Lexington, Kentucky in Fall of 2023. 

About David Bancroft
Born in Alabama and raised in San Antonio, TX, David Bancroft’s passion for food began at an early age. Bancroft grew up eating some of the best cuisines the South has to offer, including Alabama’s famous white sauce BBQ and bacon collard greens, along with Texas’ crave-worthy beef brisket and breakfast tacos. Bancroft parlayed his love of food into a passion for cooking, inspired by his family’s approach to home-style dining. Bancroft spent time on the Alabama family farm hunting and fishing with his grandfather and learning how to smoke brisket and barbecue while developing a deep appreciation and care for the meat and its procurement process. After finishing high school, Bancroft returned to his Alabama roots to attend Auburn University, where Bancroft served as the kitchen steward for his fraternity and later went on to serve as the head chef at Amsterdam Café in Auburn during his senior year. Feeling confident in his experiences and looking for a way to utilize his self-taught skills as a farmer, forager, and chef, Bancroft opened Acre restaurant with his wife, Christin in August 2013.
