Today as I celebrate Thanksgiving home with family in New Jersey I look to what the future holds for me in 2020. I am thankful for the many things ahead of me as well as the members of my Tribe who will celebrate with me the things ahead. With that stay tuned for some big announcements coming in the near future. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. #chefscholar #chefslead #thankful #2020willbemyyear #teamrlwkem #rlw #kem #myfutureisbright #mytribe

Excited!! Arriving today The Fonio Cook Book from @chefpierrethiam I had the pleasure  of meeting chef in Denver @slowfoodusa  Slow Food Nations. I even made catfish stew for him to eat. What is Fonio you ask? It is the African Super Grain that you serve like rice but cooks like Cous Cous. Make sure you pick up this important book. #chefscholar #chefslead #fromblackhandstowhitemouths #fonio #supergrain #chefpierrethiam #slowfoodnations2019 #slowfood #thefoniocookbook
Today I had the honor of hosting the Japanese delegation from Ajinimoto. I shared with them the importance of several ingredients pertinent to Soutern, Soul,  and Gullah Geechie cuisine here in America. Here is my version of Shrimp and Grits with @geechieboymill Jimmy Red Corn Grits finished with crunchy okra and corn
Anyone who knows me knows that my Grandmother Doris gave me my love of food. She taught me to love ingredients, that cooking for someone is an act of love, and to always make sure when people leave the table they are full from food and fellowship. Today November 3rd I honor her by wishing her the happiest of Birthdays. Though this picture is not current it shows her infectious spirit and the love we share. I love you Grandmother Doris and again wish you Happy Birthday and many more.  #grandmotherdoris #grandmasboy #theloveoffood #fromheranklestoaman #fellowship #happybirthday #queenscorpio #grandmadontplay #wishestorlw
Those who really know me know the work that I do is for my community which is made up of my students, colleagues, family and friends. I want to always educate those around me of our history which is both beautiful and complicated. Tonight I am honored to sit down with my dear friend @pinkmoonafterdark @thetykarobinson to share my story and journey at the @halsey_institute this evening starting at 8 pm. You will also learn the significance of this photo. See you there.  #chefscholar #chefslead #fromblackhandstowhitemouths #enslavedcooks #freedcooks #gullahgeechee #charlestonhistory #southernfoodways #pinkmoonafterdark #conversationsthatpushthenarrative #blackexcellence #blackchefs #blackculinaryhistory

The other day I reminiscing on the first kitchen job.  The Cafe Gallery in New Jersey is where my love of food was nourished. This dish is a rendition of something we served on the menu. This is an Louisiana style Bbq Shrimp. Think cajun spices, bbq spices, beer, loads of garlic, and of course butter. Here I decided to add tomato, lemon, capers and yes crab meat and served it over toasted French bread. Just think that same day I told a friend I was not cooking, well I guess it didn't go down that way, lol  #chefscholar #louisiana #cafegallery #mykitchen #fingerlickinggood #rlw #kem #scholarcanstillcook #grandmotherdoris

As a chef inspiration is key. For me it is important to embrace those things that inspire me. Seafood Pasta done two ways. I must say they both were delicious.  #chefscholar #mydinner #seafoodpasta #beinspired #rlw #tdp #kem #scholarcanstillcook #moretocome #2020willbemyyear

Thoughts for today  Never travel down the path of another.  Where there is no path paved, pave your own. Only you can be you!! When it comes to your creative gifts, you're reminded not to sell yourself short, as you have alot that you bring to the table. Honor your worth and your talents.  #chefscholar #thankful #blessed🙏 #gemini #knowyourworth #rlw #kem #followyourdreams #putinthework #2020willbemyyear #behumble
I was inspired to get in the kitchen today and came up with this. Chicken Chasseur a classic French dish with one of my favorite herbs, tarragon. I love spinach and fresh asparagus and roasted fingerling potatoes are a no brainier. Quite delicious  #chefscholar #chefslead #frenchfood #chickenchasseur #dedicatedafriend #nowfordessert #youknowyouwantsome #inmykitchen
