Where It All Began

Devin Davis is a budding chef whose passion for food began at a young age. With humble beginnings in Plant City, Florida, his love for cooking came from simply cooking at home with his mother and two grandmothers. Born into a family that was half Southern and half Italian, he was raised on old fashioned country cooking as well as “the best tomato sauce” that his grandmother would cook on the stove all day. This new found love quickly pushed him to begin competing in cooking competitions. His first competition and win was at the young age of 13 in a national competition in Hollywood, California. This definitely took his family by surprise, and they quickly realized that he had a God given talent that, with some cultivation, could take him far in life. So, his journey did not stop there, as he grew older, he began to progress through the ranks and won many prestigious awards from the Food Network, American Culinary Federation, Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, and many others. This led him to culinary school at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Tampa. After completing his Bachelor’s Degree in culinary management, he has gone on to graduate school in pursuit of his Masters of Business Administration.

Now, ready to share his passion for food and cooking you, Devin Davis has begun his very own business, Devin Davis Culinary Group, as the foundation for future restaurants and food concepts. Now, he brings you his first concept, The Kitchen. A 20’ Cadillac of a kitchen, The Kitchen is a food truck servicing Tampa Bay and the surrounding areas. He describes the menu as “Southern Roots, Seasonally Inspired”. With his southern heritage, his vision for the Kitchen is that everything has southern inspiration, and the goal is to use as many seasonal ingredients as possible.
