Thanksgiving is vastly approaching us and we are all just about ready to eat that fat bird we call a turkey. Well, here is your chance to relax this year and not stress over who’s going to cook the bird and how are they going to cook it.
Chicago has many talented cooks but my personal favorite is Chef Charles Nicholas Graham, chef and owner of Trip N Turkey! A catering company that specialize in Deep Fried Flavor Turkeys. With their signature flavors like Jerk, Italian Herb, Cajun, T-N-T Hot Sauce and side dishes such as; grilled cabbage, Mac & cheese, dirty rice, and green beans, just to name a few, your Thanksgiving is sure to be a hit! Trip N Turkey makes cooking easy for you. So if you don’t order from them, you Trip’n!
I had the opportunity to sit with Chef Chuck, and find out more information about the Chef and about Trip N Turkey catering. Check out the interview below…
Bobbee: What made you want to study culinary, and become a Chef?
Chef Chuck: I’ve always loved cooking, and I originally was just going to focus on getting my sanitation license, but it was my fiancé who pushed and encourage me to go to school to build my skills and gain more knowledge on creating certain dishes.
Bobbee: Where did the name Trip N Turkey come from?
Chef Chuck: *smiles* I was sitting in the living room just relaxing with my friends, and I had the idea, that I shared out loud, of selling fried Organic turkeys at $150. They all looked at me and said “Man, you trip’n”. Trip N Turkey was born.
Bobbee: Being a chef, I’m pretty sure you know how to cook many things that are not even on your menu, what is your favor dish to cook?
Chef Chuck: Sautéed shrimp over Tomato coulis and pasta.
Bobbee: What is the next step in business for Trip N Turkey and for Chef Chuck?
Chef Chuck: The next step for Trip N Turkey, is to have a traveling food truck, and a brick and mortar. As for myself, I’m going to continue to focus on enhancing my cooking skills and dishes, as well as give back to the community by hosting local cooking classes for under privileged kids.
