New York City Chef, Ed Harris’ unending passion for cuisine began in the kitchen many years ago. Originally from the Caribbean island of St.Lucia, over the past decade he has been heavily involved in several aspects of the food industry. From private events and various celebrity gatherings, to consulting on menu items and restaurant concepts, Harris’ knowledge of the culinary world comes from an array of experiences. He’s taken skills from positions as a Tournant, Executive Sous Chef, Dim Sum Chef, Expediter and Saucier, and applied them to his current role as a Consultant Chef. It is that eclectic background that allows him to play an active role in the planning, supervision and creative aspects involved within the food industry.
Chef Harris’ work is not just limited to creating meals for his clients. He has dedicated much of his leisure time to teaching children about food and culinary business, and to raising money for charities like the Taste of New York and the James Beard Foundation. Harris was the winner of the Food Network’s CHOPPED “Turbo Powered” Season Four. He also appeared as a chef on 24-hour Restaurant Battle. His education from the Art Institute of New York City and past experiences allow him to specialize in a variety of cuisine styles. A St. Lucian native, Chef Harris continues to embrace his connection with the culinary world as he embarks on a new journey as part of Atlanta’s culinary community with Chef Life Consulting and Chef Life Events.
