Personal Chef Jonil started Flavors of your Palate due to his passion for food. Since the tender age of seven, his relatives have been molding him into an eclectic chef. His Caribbean heritage and culinary experiences from around the world stand out in each of his creations. He grew up in New York City and Miami, these two melting pots were his culinary schools. Jonil has a masters degree in Human Services, therefore, he has a soft spot for nonprofit organizations. He plans on donating some of the proceeds from his pop up events to local non-profit organizations. Chef Jonil created Dining with Strangers (DWS) events because he wanted to be different from the many traditional chefs in the world. DWS events are food centric networking events for everyone. It gives strangers the opportunity to learn about one another’s culture, ideology, and community while having a delicious meal and yummy drinks. The purpose of these events is for strangers to cultivate friendships and unity.
