Raised in Brooklyn, NY, Chef Ed learned most of his cooking techniques from his father, Ed Sr.—who was raised in the food capital, Louisiana.  Following in his father’s footsteps, Young Chef Ed spent his weekends with his dad at the Riverside Church in Harlem, where they catered wedding receptions and special events. Motivated by his dad’s work ethic, he went on to graduate from The New York Restaurant School for Culinary Arts and worked at top establishments around the world.

Today, Chef Edward Brumfield continues to explore his creative passion for the culinary arts. Incorporating his love for hip hop music and cuisine, he has created Chef Ed’s Mixtape Dinner featured rap-themed dinners complete with a live band and surprise hip hop touches. The sophisticated dishes are upgrades to the classics we have grown to love but in 5-star fashion complete with description.
