We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthony Hunter and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Anthony, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor is how different that I bring a great dinning experience right to your home or event. The many different culture cuisine from South Africa cuisine to America cuisine. My 12 years of culinary arts school has help me gain and the knowledge of food. I have Certificate of completion with Earl C. Clements and a Associates degree from Le cordon bleu. The years I spent gaining knowledge working for big chain restaurants and higher in restaurants, from working at Waffle House at 15 to opening and run a 5 star Cru Wine Bar restaurant at 22. The best factor is that I cook out of love and the things I came across on my journey. Life is hard so I put everything to a plate
