Chef Mimi is a Culinary Artist, Community strategist and Mother. Her work-life balance game is strong and developing it was imperative to her growth as a woman and professional. After graduating from San Francisco Culinary Arts Academy in 1995, she felt alone and wanted to see more chefs who looked like her be represented in the culinary industry media space. In an effort to forge her own seat at the culinary table she created, Bringing it to the Table (BITTT), a competitive reality show that gives a platform to Black Chefs, Wine Makers, Foodies, Entrepreneurs, and Innovators to finally have a space to showcase their talent and culture. Her mission is to create space for Chefs to express their culinary skills without being told or limited to the narrative that Black Chefs only can cook Soul Food or BBQ. Best believe, Black chefs do that too, and they do it well, but their skills, palates and aspirations are as diverse as their backgrounds. Chef Mimi believes that regardless of your class or ethnicity that, "We are all connected through food.”




Bringing It To The Table is an African-American reality cooking competition. The show unveils drama with fiery and clashing personalities in a battle for culinary domination. It’s an opportunity for chefs to share their lives while living out their culinary dreams.
