Chef Antwon Brinson understands that food is more than flavor. His Culinary Concepts AB intensive program is training folks for employment in the world of cooking, giving them the opportunity to discover a career in restaurants, food service and beyond.
We reminisce about hot dogs in Buffalo and the moco loco in Hawaii, and discuss how restaurant work is both creative labor and a trade in “Burnt Flavor”, Episode 59 of the Something About Food? Podcast.
Chef Antwon Brinson was born in the small town of Niagara Falls, New York. He developed his passion for helping people and for food through his mother, who was a dedicated foster parent raising over 250 kids. Reflecting back on his childhood, being raised by a single parent who was purely driven by love and passion, taught him a lot about self-fulfillment.
This journey has also allowed him to explore other interests such as mentoring, teaching, and coaching young adults. He has been able to rediscover his passion for helping people through cooking. Chef Brinson is working with Culinary Concepts AB within the Charlottesville community to create programs to help young adults find direction in life through culinary arts. Follow them on Instagram.
