Chef Smoot's passion for food began at a young age. The meals his mom and dad cooked up around the dinner table left a huge impression on him. Growing up, he thought cooking was a just a tasty hobby until he got to college. In college, he had the opportunity to work out of a small kitchen in Arlington, TX. From there, he gained valuable knowledge and experience that allowed him to grow his culinary talents. He had the opportunity to watch and study how dishes were created, plated, orchestrated, and saw there were endless possibilities in the kitchen for him.

After college, Chef Smoot continued to follow his passion of cooking and eventually stepped out fully on faith. Since then, doors and opportunities have continuously come his way and thus, Smoot's Kitchen was born.
