Season one of Chef Roble & Co followed culinary all-star Roble Ali as he got his high-end catering business up and running. Now that the Brooklyn-based company is established, Ali and team are back for Season 2, and it promises to be even busier than the first. This season features big-name clients like musical artist John Legend, NBA player Tyson Chandler, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s very own Phaedra Parks.
And since Roble’s clientele is growing, so is his staff. Joining him this season are personal assistant Dan; Rob, a pastry chef who you may recognize from Hell’s Kitchen Season 8; and Jeorge, the team’s new prep chef.
Everyone's returning, including Roble’s sister Jasmine, back this season as Event Designer, along with Artie, who is now the full-time Event Director and second in command. Needless to say, the two have their share of clashes. As the pressure builds, it’s up to Roble to keep the business on track, keep his team together, and make the clients happy. It’s going to be a crazy ride, and we can’t wait!
We know what you’re thinking: is it June yet? Unfortunately it’s not, but to tide you over until then, here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store this season. Take a look and tell us what you think in the Comments section!
Chef Roble needs to stop cursing.... If he cannot handle the heat he should get out of the kitchen.... Leave your ego at the door...I work in the film industry and we are very tough, if anyone would curse at us they would find themselves flying off the set!!! Just saying...
I have just discovered Roble & Co through watching on the web and I love the series.
My son is a professional chef and I have worked in the catering business myself, so to see this series and the day to day running of the business is fascinating. It smacks of authenticity and reality to me, more so than many of these so called "authentic celebrity chef" programmes.
I love the care and attention to detail each and every plating gets from the chef and his team, and love his sister Jasmine and Artie's creativity.
I really wish this could be formated in the UK as it is so much more substantial in the recipes, creativity and actual content than many of the "celeb chefs" series' that we have to watch on TV here.
Keep on cooking and creating your wonderful events I love the show! xx
The way you spoke to your pastry chef on the episode where she had a day off was shameful. To be a good boss, particularly given that you are constantly talking about how you are the boss, you need to be able to listen and take responsibility. It is not all about proclaiming your authority. You should not have made her try to feel guilty for taking a day off. You were the one in the wrong here.
Chef Roble I love your show. I wish I can copy some of your receipts.
I watched the show when you had a business conversation with your sister, and I think she have to be patient and one day she could be more involved in management, after all she is family, but business is business. I think you should have a quarterly meetings with your employees/friends and sister and get all involved in the company's progress. Get a manager, all companies need a manager, and when the owner is busy, as you are Roble, have some one you trust to make decisions, and communicate with you the final decision for approval.
I love the way you handle thought situations, you tried to be fare with everyone.
I can't wait to watch your show, is fun and at the same time very serious when it comes to the dishes preparation.
