Sewell Appliance Hosts Chef David Rose For Good Morning America’s 12 Days of Christmas Cookies Special

Earlier this month, Sewell Appliance happily hosted Chef David Rose in its Monogram showroom to promote his magnificent Cinnamon Eggnog Heath Crunch Cookies for Good Morning America’s 12 Days of Christmas Cookies special.

Chef David Rose was born and raised in New Jersey, surrounded by chef parents who sparked his interest for exquisite and diverse cuisine. After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary College, Chef Rose moved to Atlanta and has developed a more southern cooking style as he took inspiration from his surroundings. Since then, he has appeared on the Food Network, befitted Omaha Steaks Executive Chef/ Spokesperson and serves as a national brand ambassador for Nissan USA and Big Green Egg.

Known for his signature bold flavors and the occasional flair from his family’s Jamaican recipes, Good Morning America invited Chef Rose onto their special Christmas minisode, 12 Days of Christmas Cookies, for Day 8: “Eight Maids-A-Milking.”


The “Eight Maids-A-Milking” episode with David Rose was filmed in the Monogram display at the Sewell Appliance showroom located just north of Atlanta in Sandy Springs, GA. Using the best countertops in Atlanta, alongside GE Monogram’s high-quality kitchen appliances, Chef Rose worked up a tasty cinnamon eggnog Heath crunch cookie, which is the perfect sweet treat to add to any holiday table spread!

Watch the minisode below!
