Chef Brazil quickly groomed his culinary skills and become one of the company’s Executive Chefs by the age of 25. He is formerly the Executive Chef at Georgetown Law. He has been providing delicious hospitality for over 12 years in the DC Metropolitan Area. To watch him work is to see true passion ignite. Food really is his first love. Chef Brazil decided that he wanted to have a more personal and intimate setting to share his creations with guests, so he decided to become a personal chef.
T-Mac: How do you get your inspiration?
Chef Brazil: Pretty much from music and restaurants that I visit. Different music inspires me to cook certain things. My mood determines the flavor of my food.
T-Mac: What advice can you give to beginning chefs, in terms of making themselves marketable and becoming good at cooking?
Chef Brazil: I recommend some sort of training (school, working for a mentor, and practice, practice, practice).
T-Mac: Tell us what is in your fridge/freezer that would surprise people?
Chef Brazil: Frozen dumplings. I like to make them from scratch for clients but I eat them every day for myself.
T-Mac: What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten and did you enjoy it?
Chef Brazil: Crickets!! It was at a Latin restaurant. Horrible experience.
T-Mac: What would you do to change and or add to the food scene in the Washington, DC metro region?
Chef Brazil: I think most of the black chefs are all doing the same food (some form of mac and cheese, a variation of chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, and everything else unhealthy). I want to do an Asian/ Creole fusion.
T-Mac: You’re scheduled for the electric chair. What’s your last meal?
Chef Brazil: Turkey and Spinach Lasagna
T-Mac: Pork bacon or turkey bacon?
Chef Brazil: Turkey Bacon, only because I don’t eat pork.
