The award-winning chef will visit to share the remarkable story of his culinary coming-of-age and discuss his inspiring memoir, Notes From a Young Black Chef.
Onwuachi is the James Beard Award-winning executive chef at Kith/Kin and owner of the Philly Wing Fry franchise in Washington, D.C.
He was first exposed to cooking by his mother, in the family’s modest Bronx apartment, and he took that spark of passion and turned it into a career. From toiling in the bowels of oil cleanup ships to working at some of the best restaurants in the world, he has seen and lived his fair share of diversity.
Onwuachi trained at the Culinary Institute of America and opened five restaurants before turning 30. A former Top Chef contestant, he has been named one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs and a 30 Under 30 honoree by both Zagat and Forbes.
