Robyn Almodovar is cooking up a culinary dynasty. The celebrity chef is the co-owner and executive chef at Rumors Bar and Grill in Wilton Manors and also owns Palate Party Gourmet Food Truck.
She recently wrapped up a season on “Hell’s Kitchen All-Stars.” (She also won Season 24 of the Food Network's "Chopped” “CutThroat Kitchen,” and has competed on CHOPPED Impossible and Camp Cut Throat.)
A self-described triple threat — lesbian, Latina, and woman, Almodovar is showing no signs of losing her competitive edge or slowing down. A private chef for celebrities including Timbaland, John Corbett, and DJ Irie, Almodovar is in the process of writing a cookbook that she hopes to publish at the end of the year. She is humbled by being named one of this year’s OUT50.
“I am really glad that I am a staple in South Florida, especially the Wilton Manors area since I live there,” she says. “I want to give as much back to the community as possible.”
Almodovar’s culinary delights are available at Rumors – it has a weekly Sunday brunch; in April it turns up a notch for a Drag Brunch.
