Chef Carlos puts a unique spin on all of the dishes we’ve come to enjoy: fresh, quality, flavorful American cuisine from a chef all too familiar with making the palate dance. Chef Carlos operates under the philosophy of changing food taste norms while keeping the choices fresh and simple. “Eating good food should be an experience, not simply a means for sustenance,” Every dish prepared by Chef Carlos is to engage three senses—sight, smell and taste. Each dish is a colorful and artistic presentation that takes full advantage of Chef’s creativity. Chef Carlos believes that the visual appeal to a dish should be closely linked to the dishes aroma, which should in turn invite you to taste. The taste itself is created to engage every part of your palate as the flavors bursts onto your tongue,”
Chef Carlos Whitfield has now embarked on the next phase of his contribution to the world of Culinary Arts as Chef Instructor at Duncanville High School since 2014, where has begun to revolutionize the CTE culinary program for Duncanville Independent School District.
It is his mission to teach young minds to have passion when they cook. “Cook from the heart, …Eat from the mind”
