2/9 – Stories Behind The Menu w/ Chef Mateo Mackbee

Join us to honor Black History Month as Stories Behind the Menu features Chef Mateo Mackbee, co-founder of Krewe Restaurant, and recent contestant on Food Network’s CHOPPED. Mateo developed a deep love for New Orleans’ culture as he spent the summers of his youth watching his grandfather cook for family and friends throughout the city. A native of Bloomington, MN, Chef Mackbee heeded the call to follow the family tradition of nourishing appetites and feeding souls in 2008, and the rest, as they say, is history. Using those old and much-loved family recipes of his grandfather’s, Mateo is passionate about using farm-fresh ingredients to create delicious, satisfying food in the New Orleans tradition, including dishes like muffuletta, jambalaya, gumbo, and more.
