"A good meal should leave you feeling the same as good love…always wanting more"

Malcolm Mitchell

Amy Ayers + Malcolm Mitchell

If extraordinary cooking is a gift, then Malcolm Mitchell (finalist of season 8 of Food Network Star) is the giver. Never satisfied with tradition, Malcolm has taken the culinary world by storm with his avant-garde blend of taste, texture, and style.

Thrown into the kitchen at the age of 12, alongside his Charleston-born mother of West Indian descent, Malcolm began his love affair with Southern-Caribbean (what he calls “Geechee”) cuisine.

After spending four years traveling the world in the Navy, Malcolm turned his passion for cooking into a career. He learned from various master chefs while he developed his own style of cuisine, and obtained a degree in Advanced Culinary Arts in 2002.

Shortly thereafter, Malcolm founded his signature company: M. Mitchell the Chef, a personal chef service that delivered pre-packaged cuisine for the time-starved individual seeking a flavorful meal. His vast repertoire opened doors to work in major multi-million-dollar production kitchens, upscale restaurants, and the homes of NBA athletes, A-list celebrities, and politicians.

In 2007, he launched Brain Food, a healthy school lunch program that provides nutritionally sound meals from scratch while holding true to gourmet style. The success of Brain Food led to Malcolm’s involvement in Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign to fight childhood obesity.

In 2011 Malcolm teamed up with Spike Mendelsohn of Bravo’s Top Chef on the 1st Kosher Food Truck in Washington DC and has since then been invited to be the featured Chef during the Jewish National Summit at the Red Rock Casino April 2013. He was also invited to the Chinese Culinary Competition in Times Square hosted by New Tang Dynasty to compete against world renowned chefs with traditional Chinese Dishes.

Chef Malcolm is no stranger to mass communications he hosted his own radio show “Choppin’ It Up with the Chef” on Radio One’s WOL 1450 Talk Radio in Washington DC. Malcolm has been featured in various magazines such as Food Network Magazine, Sister 2 Sister Magazine and KRAVE and was a contributing writer for digital magazines Excell Style and Shirley Strawberry. He has been seen on Fox & Friends displaying holiday recipes and on many local news shows in Washington DC and Richmond Va. discussing his Pop-Up Restaurant Concept Promiscuous Palate which has taken him all over the country; New York, Miami, Washington DC, Aspen CO. and Richmond Va.

After months of searching post Food Network Star, Malcolm’s plan was to land in Richmond Va. and open his very 1st restaurant Charleston’s Low Country Cuisine in Shockoe Bottom or TASTE Modern American Cuisine in Jackson Ward. The stars just seemed to align at MINT, In the Fan. Chef Malcolm will “Team Up” with Amy Ayers well known restauranteur in Richmond VA. to create the New Mint Gastro Pub set to Re-open July 2013.
