Leroy Walwyn Jr. followed his passion for cooking and
pursued a degree in Culinary Arts at Le Cordon Bleu
where he obtained his degree in 2007. He joined his father who owns and operates ,Caribbean Flavors,a restaurant and catering business. Together they operated the businesses successfully for several years.
In 2011, Chef Leroy decided to showcase his talents outside of his Caribbean roots. Working as part owner and catering chef of the restaurant, Caribbean Flavors, he found it difficult to explain to potential clients that Caribbean Flavors did not only specialize in Caribbean cuisine. Catering became a challenge outside of Caribbean cuisine as others just saw him as a Caribbean chef.
As a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Leroy learned to be versatile and can create a vast variety of cuisines whether it may be Mediterranean, French, Latin-American even Southern, he is up to the challenge. Chef Leroy’s Caribbean roots allow him to bring a different flavor to your palette as he fuses different cultures and cuisines together to create an amazing experience.
We no longer can say he is just a Caribbean Chef who
specializes in Caribbean Cuisine. He has proven that he is a world class chef who is passionate in what he does. He calls it the ‘Personal Touch’ as he is quickly becoming known as ‘The People’s Chef’ throughout the state of Georgia. Chef Leroy is also fast becoming a familiar face in the entertainment world. His cooking skills and ‘No Problem Mon’ personality has been featured on Atlanta’s NBC show, Atlanta & Co. He has also made a cameo in hip-hop group Nappy Roots music video doing what he does best.
Chef Leroy is also appearing in several episodes of the
show ‘Cooking with The Pros’ which airs on Charter Cable with former NFL football players.
