About the OC Rock n Roll Chef Phillip Knoke - Culinary EntertainerGuys & dolls

Executive Chef/Owner Phillip Knoke serving catered food at a large private event in Dana Point catererAs a child I always had to be center of attention, trying to entertain people around me. So I started playing drums and pursued a career in rock & roll, accomplishing minor success traveling the U. S. from coast to coast and releasing a few albums.

In my late 20’s I got married, started a family and pursued something more promising that I have a natural talent for; cooking. Time after time I would volunteer to cook for a grilling extravaganza and not only had fun but everyone remarked on how good the food tasted. That’s when it hit me, “hey, wouldn’t it be great to make this my career.” My father once told me “No matter what you wish to be successful at, it takes hard work and a good education; There are no short cuts to the top.”
My mind was made up I went to school at the world renowned Le Cordon Bleu, Graduating as one of the top in my class with a degree in culinary arts.

With a fiery rebellious drive to blend the world of rock N Roll and food together I constantly strive to present an unforgettable experience. I’ve had thorough training at Le Cordon Bleu, Hilton, Double Tree, life experiences of being a professional caterer and being the chef owner operator of a one of a kind beach front restaurant and now have the honor of putting on shows for everyone from political parties, commanding officers & record producers to working class heroes. So sit back relax and enjoy what I call Culinary Entertainment.
