The purpose of my first cookbook is to be a testimony to what God can do in an individual life. After spending 16 years in Oil and Gas, I decided at the age of 37 to attend the Culinary School at the Art Institute of America. Now some 10 years later, I want to shout out to the world all that God has blessed me with from having a successful catering company, spending 5 years as personal chef to NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady, moving on to opening and running a successful restaurant, “Chef Rey’s”, and now serving as Executive Team Chef for Houston Astro’s MLB Team. I am a true example to what God can and will provide for you.
During the journey of becoming Chef Rey, I have been blessed to demonstrate my gift of the arts of culinary to some amazing clients llike Beyoncé, Tracy McGrady, Brian Cushing, Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, Jennifer Holliday, and many more. My theme of “It’s All About Color” is to transfer culinary onto your basic white dinner plate, because we “Eat with our Eyes.” I have selected some of my clients’ favorite recipes, along with the stories behind how some of the dishes came to life. Thank you for taking the journey with me as I grow into becoming “Chef Rey.” In addition, I am in prayer when preparing one of my recipes that it will encourage you to feed the souls of those you love. Because “God is Love”! ~ Chef Rey
