He has occupied every cooking position from line cook; sous chef, to executive chef, and most recently to consulting chef for several upstart restaurants. Chef Denzil’s vast experience provided him with a diverse cue of cooking styles from African, Eastern European, Southern American, Latin, and of course Caribbean cuisines.
