Chef Joe Rego, Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen Star Who Gives Back to His Community
December 28, 2016
In this final episode of 2016 (actually recorded a few months ago), we talk with Chef Joe Rego, winner of two Food Network Shows – Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen. How did he get started? Joe has always been an artist! And growing up, Joe helped his mom cook (like many of us) growing up in Lisbon before coming to New Bedford. He graduated from culinary school at Johnson and Wales. And he’s worked in multiple places, from New England to Georgia & Florida. He also shared some advice for aspiring chefs out there.
Chef Joe dishes about some of his favorite foods – ice cream and caracóis – before sharing some of his favorite New Bedford spots: Novo Mundo and The Black Whale, to name a few. Stay tuned for Joe’s newest project, Cask & Pig Kitchen & Alehouse, opening in Dartmouth, MA in early 2017.
You’ll also discover how Chef Joe is a big supporter of his community, and loves to give back in multiple ways. It’s always awesome to see someone who uses their success for good and giving back to the community.
Joe also LOVES being a daddy to his young daughter. =)
