Meet The Chef
Born and raised in New Orleans, Chef Rommel of Rommel’s Catering was primarily influenced by his Spanish culture to begin his work as a chef. Rommel is the executive chef and owner of Chef Rommel’s Catering. Chef and father, Rommel loved cooking and started working the food industry at a very young age. Influenced by his hard working ability, he joined the Navy at 17. After he completed his military service, he returned to New Orleans to begin what he loved best, cooking. He soon attended Delgado Culinary School, and began working for several hotels and restaurants such as the Windsor Court, Intercontinental and Mr.B’s. He soon ventured out to Chicago, Illinois to begin working for Lettuce Entertain You Corporation. Happily, he moved back due to the love of New Orleans, starting his own business. In the start of his booming business he started catering boxed lunches and dinners, eventually progressing into the business it is today. His delicious box lunches and small events eventually got him noticed by many people, transitioning into large corporate and national events.
