For me, cooking is...
A way to bring people together and open a whole new world, not just in tastes but in cultures and experiences.
I learned to cook at...
As a child in my parent's restaurant, while sharpening my craft in culinary school and everyday I've worked in a kitchen for the past 20+ years.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Every dedicated kitchen employee who does their work with pride.
A cooking secret...
Treating food with respect and learning what it does, you don't force things in the kitchen, you manipulate them.

Chef Rodolfo was amazing! He made our evening celebrating my boyfriends 30th the best experience with memories we can have forever! He made the best dishes in the kitchen of our Airbnb, answered all our questions, was super interactive and shared so much knowledge with us. We all very much enjoyed the food and definitely plan on booking him for our future events in Dallas!

We would absolutely book Chef Rodolfo again! Between the tasty courses and fun stories about his journey as a Chef, we truly enjoyed our experience. I surprised my boyfriend with this, and he loved it - he’s a big foodie with high expectations for quality, so I feel like that says a lot! The chef was on time, plated our leftovers, and even left our kitchen cleaner probably than when he arrived!! :)

Chef Rodolfo is amazing!!! This experience is unforgettable... for middle-class people, it’s not every day you get to have an executive chef cooking for you! Our overall experience is wonderful! Let me tell you how He arrived early to prep, he got everything he needed. I didn’t have to worry about anything... chef Rodolfo is very entertaining & got a lot of stories to tell!! The food was amazing! he served us generous portions of each dish. My favorite was the ribeye. It was tender, juicy, and flavorful! Definitely, this made my bf’s bday extra special! Thank you Chef!
