Celebrity Judges: Chris Motto!

Growing up in south Louisiana, Chris Motto was surrounded by some of the country’s best food at an early age. Not a weekend would go by without a bbq, crawfish boil, fish fry, or sunday dinners at grandma’s. It was then he began to realize the power of good food to bring people together and celebrate life. 

Chef Motto was recently able to showcase his skill set while competing on Season 18 of Fox’s globally viewed Hell’s Kitchen. Working under Chef Gordon Ramsay is amongst the top of his achievements. Remaining true to himself, Chef Motto passed on a potential opportunity to relocate to Las Vegas. Choosing to continue what he started in Baton Rouge and share the wealth of knowledge he obtained while working and filming in California.
