James Beard Award semifinalist for “Best Chef: Great Lakes.” He has appeared on the Cooking Channel’s “America’s Best Bites” and won @TimeOutChicago’s Time In Award for “Rising Instagram Cooking Star.”
I started working in a restaurant five days a week at the age
of 16 in New Orleans, where I was born and raised. I came up the traditional way but faster. I moved to Miami, and a chef I was working with received an offer in Chicago. He asked me to come with him. I was not prepared for the position, but with self- discipline and self-teaching I was able to make it better each day. My cooking style reflects the heart and soul of Southern food, with its different cultural influences. That’s my core.
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
