Chef Kenny’s interest in the kitchen began when he was very young, wowing his family with superb Thanksgiving meals before he was even twelve years old.  His mother noticed his knack in the kitchen and let him foster his love for creating amazing culinary masterpieces. Chef Kenny was awarded the high position of Chef de Cuisine at The Ritz-Carlton, only four years after completing culinary school.  He was the youngest at the time to accomplish this feat, all while achieving and maintaining AAA Five Diamond status.

He has appeared on many Bravo cooking shows including Top Chef DC, Beat Bobby Flay, (where he triumphed over him) and Cutthroat Kitchen to name a few.  His two restaurants, Gilbert’s Social and Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen continue to win awards and accolades for his exceptional culinary talents, continuing to make his mark in Jacksonville as one of the best.
