For most of his 15 years as a professional chef, Chef Rey has been blessed to have worked for some premier performers and athletes in a variety of arenas, including his current position as the Executive Chef for the Houston Rockets. Chef Rey lives by the belief that The Recipe for Life is Love and he applies that philosophy in and out of the kitchen, through his food and philanthropic endeavors: Standing in the Gap, the Chef Rey Scholarship, and others.
The Elite Performer’s Chef
“Chef Rey is the athletes’ chef in addition to the Performing Artists as well. He has worked as a private chef for many of the best athletes AND ARTISTS in the world. It is only great performance based food if it tastes good and clearly the evidence speaks for itself. Modifying recipes to meet an athlete’s individual goal or a team goal is central to performance based nutrition. Chef Rey can take traditional high fat foods and modify them to fit the performance template. Although there are many great chefs in the country, few can make leaner food taste like gourmet food from the best restaurant. This is not only unusual· it is an art. Welcome to the world of Chef Rey!”
