Chef Kenny is a native of Washington D.C, who now calls Harlem home. Working as a private chef, Kenny delights his clients with a cuisine built on the traditional Southern cooking he learned growing up, mixed with Southwestern and Asian accents he picked up in the professional kitchen. He is committed to sourcing the best local and sustainable products and raw ingredients for all his menus.
In addition to his personal chef services, Kenny remains active in the community conducting nutrition and cooking workshops for adults and children at community centers, health and wellness expos, and schools and universities. In 2010, Kenny launched the Eat for Now, Eat for Life Project, working hands-on with individuals looking to transition to a healthier way of eating and living through diet and exercise.
“I’ve learned through personal experience, losing 80 pounds and keeping it off for over ten years, that now is the only true moment you have. When you “eat for life” in the now, food becomes a way to connect with your truest self and your goals,” says Chef Kenny.
Kenny holds a B.A. in culinary arts from The Art Institutes. His food styling has been featured in Hamptons magazine’s “Restaurants – The 2010 Power List”, and he recently appeared in an episode of the Food Network show “Chopped”.
Chef Kenny has a new cookbook titled “Shake Lunch Up!”, slated for publishing in 2013.
