about chef manny


1/2 Chef + 1/2 Firefighter


I am a 11 year Lieutenant & Paramedic with the City of Orlando Fire Department. For as long as I can remember I would always find myself in the kitchen growing up. Whether making dinner with my grandmother Georgia Bell or baking deserts with my Sandra my mom. I was creating memories for which I’m truly reflected on till this day. Life lessons through my father helped stabilized my career with the Orlando Fire Department. As a retired firefighter of the City of Miami, my father taught me life lessons that helped me as a rookie. Over time, this task of cooking became a hobby, into a passion for which I love today. From cooking as a rookie on my first day on the job to now I am lighting up your taste buds and leaving hunger in smoke!!!!
