Adam started cooking at a young age and creating the perfect pot of gumbo soon became his obsession. Having learned the "proper" gumbo technique from his great-grandmother Nanny, Adam is still pursuing the perfect gumbo and works tirelessly to ensure his customers have their culinary minds blown. 

Adam’s cooking has gone on to receive high praise from customers and press alike, having been positively reviewed and featured in: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Today Show, New York Magazine, Grubstreet, Eater, and many other publications. Adam has been selected to cook at the Food Network’s New York Food and Wine Festival for 3 consecutive years and has been a guest speaker at the New York Restaurant Show in 2017 and 2019.

When he isn’t cooking, Adam is likely cheering for or talking about his beloved New Orleans Saints.
