Certified Master Chef Daryl Shular is one of the most talented and respected chefs in the country.
With competition being in his blood, stemming from a sports background, he has won over twelve gold medals, eight “Best in Shows,” and was on the ACF United States Culinary Olympic Team as they won top honors against 63 teams at the IKA “Culinary Olympics” and brought home gold.
As though the achievement of culinary Olympian wasn’t enough, Chef Daryl Shular continued to push himself to the highest level possible and came face-to-face with one of the toughest tests of all time, the Certified Master Chef examination. After a grueling 130-hour, eight-day test, Daryl solidified his legacy by becoming the first African-American to be awarded the designation of Certified Master Chef.
To this day, even with all the accolades, he remains humble and fiercely dedicated to giving back to the industry. He is consistently on tour throughout the US to empower culinary students to not just follow in his footsteps but to go beyond.
Below is a snapshot of his interview featured in the November issue of Entrepreneurial Chef Magazine. It provides great pieces of advice for anyone looking to leave their mark on the world!
