HEAD COOK: Louis Robinson
COMPETITION: World Recipe Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: World Recipe Championship
I grew up in Oakland California. My father died at a young age, but I used to watch my mother cook in the kitchen all the time. I would also sit on the couch for hours and watch cooking shows on tv. As I I hit my teenage years, naturally my fist job was at a restaurant, and I've worked in that field ever since.
Over the years I have been privileged to work as a line cook, prep cook, general manager, chef de cuisine, and I am now the chef/owner of Spice, a pop up restaurant and private chef service out of Sarasota FL.
I specialize in Latin-Caribbean Food with a California twist. I like bright, bold flavors and elegant presentation. At the end of the day, my focus remains very similar to when I started...make great food and make people happy!
