Phaedra dishes on her experience with Chef Roble.

on Feb 25, 2013

On the show my good friend and culinary genius Chef Roble visited my home and prepared a scrumptious dinner for me, Kandi, Todd, and Apollo. Chef Roble simply followed his dreams and childhood passion when he decided to pursue culinary arts. When we first met, I asked him if he ever saw his passion affording him the opportunity to cook for entertainment icons and politicians such as the late Michael Jackson, President Obama, Spike Lee, and Jack Nicholson. He replied, “No, I am just doing what I love to do.” I then shared with him one of my favorite sayings: “When preparation meets opportunity, success is unavoidable.” This has proven true, as Chef Roble is now a household name and shares his culinary skills with many, including the President. During our lifetime we all have the opportunity to either repeat history or set a precedent, which will give wings to the future; thereby making history. It is my hope to be a history maker, and I encourage you to do the same.
