ABOUT CHEF KENNETH

Hi, I’m Kenneth and I’m passionate about good food! I’m a champion for and teacher of Southern Creole, a cuisine close to my heart. Southern Creole is a style of cooking originating in Louisiana; richly influenced by Native American, West African, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Acadian and English, flavors and techniques. In other words, a melting pot of flavor!

MY STORY

Chef Kenneth C. Temple holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Culinary Arts from

The John Folse Culinary Institute. His kitchen savvy and charisma can be contributed to his New Orleans upbringing. His expertise was validated when he won the Food Network’s popular cooking competition show “Chopped” in 2017. With over 10 years in the culinary industry, Chef Kenneth has certainly laid a foundation for a long-lasting career. His professional demeanor and knack for success has landed him major partnerships including Hormel Foods, Jennie-O, Black Label Bacon, and Wholly Guacamole. He’s been featured in US Weekly, Associated Press and USA Today, Essence Music Festival, he’s received a proclamation from the City of New Orleans and was the ambassador for City of New Orleans in South Africa for three years.

The “Kenneth Temple Empire” currently consists of private dining, restaurant pop-ups, online cooking courses, his signature seasoning (Savory), his cookbook (Southern Creole), the “Hunger Trap” Facebook live cooking show, various television cooking segments, the “Southern Creole” trademark.

Looking forward, Chef Kenneth plans to continue to inspire others through his food service. His vision expands beyond dishing out cuisine, positioning him as a culinary expert.
