Several years ago, after being encouraged by his family and inspired by his passion for food and flavor, which is a part of his DNA from growing up in the South and having family ties in and around New Orleans, Chef Robin left the Information Technology field of 19 years to start a mobile food business serving Cajun/Creole cuisine at local events that were being held on the Treasure Coast of Florida.
After several events, Chef Robin's reputation for high quality food led to catering personal events and obtained an Executive Chef position for a local restaurant in Port St. Lucie, FL. After the restaurant closed in March of 2015, he decided to bring River Cat Gourmet back as a personal chef service that provides personalized menu planning and in-home food preparation of healthy/delicious meals as well as intimate dinner parties.
Along with the personal chef business, Chef Robin is looking to bring his own "Love Letter to New Orleans" restaurant to the area.

Compliments To The Chef
We hired Chef Robin to help us throw a community party. Simply put, he did exactly what he said he would do and beyond. Chef Robin was very easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to some of the dietary issues of a few guests. The food looked and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special. Thank you Chef Robin for making our Mardi Gras party a success.

River Cat Gourmet has catered several events for my company. My experience with River Cat Gourmet was absolutely marvelous. Chef Robin is simply great to work with as he is extremely easy to get along with and has a passion for cooking which shows in every dish he prepares. He even makes it a point to come out and meet with me personally.

We Actually Eat Much Better
After I was diagnosed with Stage II Diabetes, we thought our whole style of eating needed to be changed. I contacted River Cat Gourmet and Chef Robin planned a delicious diabetic friendly menu. Now we actually eat much better than before! Nothing is missing and the food is scrumptious.
