Pay attention to the folks you meet in college–they may just be your next kindred spirit and business partner. The tasteful team of Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo comprise this very template, friends turned culinary entrepreneurs who have risen to great acclaim in a short time span.  Since leaving the kitchens of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, they are the creative innovators behind the slightly more turf Animal Restaurant and definitely more surf Son of a Gun, garnering such prestigious awards as the Best Food and Wine Chefs of 2009, two James Beard nominations, Rising Star Chefs and Wine List of the Year by GQ Magazine.

Our Red Rooster chefs are heading over to the farmer’s market to pick up fresh foods for our cooking demos, DJ Qool Marv is tuning up his turntables, the kids are stretching for the yoga demos, and we’re bringing by our superstar bartender Lon to make up some mocktails. There’ll be dancing and music and expect fun giveaways and treats for everyone!

It was very important to me that we celebrate the launch of Yes, Chef with my Harlem community first, the day before my memoir goes on sale. The families and neighbors around Red Rooster Harlem and Ginny’s are the ones who make this journey worth it and I want to share this day with them.  Read More
