Follow that Chef !!!!

I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to be an amazing cook. In my dreams I am the person who all of my children and friends go to for their favorite dish. It may be silly, but I would love to be the home in the neighborhood that always smells like a well-made meal even when you walk by. In my search for chef perfection I have found these incredible Chefs. Special thank you to the New York Times for making such an incredible article called: 16 Black Chefs Changing Food in America by John Eligon and Julia MoskinJuly 16, 2019. You haven’t seen the article? Well here you go!

Chef #2
Max Hardy
35, River Bistro and COOP, Detroit

Shaped By: His childhood in a historically black neighborhood in Detroit. His mother’s Bahamian roots and his own teenage years in Miami. Dreaming of a basketball career, pivoting to culinary school, and winding up as personal chef to Amar’e Stoudemire.

“I came back to see what was going on and sold out a whole weekend of pop-up dinners. Growing up in Detroit, you didn’t see chefs and restaurants elevated like that. It was Motor City, not Food City. Now I can invent a dinner based on the recipes of Hercules, a slave who was George Washington’s personal chef, and I can have my restaurant, and I can teach kids in the community. There are so many more ways to strive for greatness as a chef.”
