Celebrity chef Kevin Roberts cooks at VC


Celebrity chef Kevin “the Food Dude” Roberts, the first guest in this year’s Lyceum Lecture Series, will be at Victoria College in the Student Center at noon on Thursday, September 29.

Roberts puts a unique spin on creative and healthy eating. His approach to food takes a fresh look at alternatives to fast food restaurants and over-processed convenience foods specifically aimed at cost-conscious college students whose kitchen resources are often limited.

During his interactive presentation, Roberts will conduct cooking demonstrations targeted towards hungry young men and women struggling to find quick and easy ways to eat healthy, delicious meals on a budget. Throughout his demonstrations, the audience will get to sample the dishes he prepares. With recipes like West Coast Wings, Tater Tot Hash and Cinnamon Roasted Grapefruit, Roberts’ cooking style demonstrates that there is more to cooking than complex recipes and expensive ingredients.

Roberts is an author and celebrity chef on TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters. He’s also been on NBC’s Today Show, the CBS Morning Show, and was a top ten finalist on Food Network’s The Next Food Network Star.  When he’s not cooking on network, cable or local television, Roberts is the owner and executive chef of East Village Tavern & Bowl, an award-winning sports bar and one of San Diego’s trendiest hot spots.
