About Kevin~ In his own words

Some of you have known of me and my culinary interests for some time, but others are just recently discovering it - and curious to learn more about my culinary background, as well as my artistic history - so here it is, in a nutshell.

I have worked the last 5 yrs in New Orleans in some of the top restaurants in the country. But grew bored with their stifling my creativity ("that's not traditional New Orleans food - We like to support our history here") Little did they know, they were creating as monster - their own worst enemy. Now Chef Kevin Smith has started building the Global Culinary Arts Empire. with the objective of creating approachable - world class cuisine. 

Due to contracts and confidentiality agreements - I am not allowed to say who I worked for - but let's just say some one name restaurants located on prestigious St Charles Avenue. I have worked with Caribbean, French, Italian, Asian, Creole, Cajun, American, and Bistro style cuisine - now melding it into my own signature style - with my own name Creole'politan. New Orleans is famous for it's food - as it is it's jazz music. Any of you have ever been there know the true great musicians get to the point they are too "evolved" and "polished" to be accepted there - so they go to a bigger pond (usually doing regular gigs in New York, Paris, Chicago, or elsewhere in Europe). This is what has happened to my food - and why I am now on my own.
