Who is Chef Bob?
After recently winning 2nd place at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show's "Surf & Turf Chef's Competition" (See awards presentation pic below) he has solidified his place as one of South Florida's most innovative, cutting edge, locally-focused chefs. Having learned from and opened restaurants with Chef Allen Susser, he is now Freelance Chef on Various Motor Yachts, Chef/Owner of Food Island Catering Corp., a Restaurant Consultant and Panelist for Slow Food Florida's State Conference.
His passion for feeding people healthy food that sustains life has led his interests to range from wild foraging native ingredients, to spearfishing lionfish, to raw lacto-fermentation to house-cured Bottarga Di Muggine. While showcasing his talent through world-wide influences he seamlessly melds our native, seasonal offerings into culinary delight. "It's @ 1st Bite!".
