Executive Chef Everton came here to me as an apprentice, He was only supposed to be here as a prep assistant to my cooks. After only a week I decided to give him a try on my line as one of my cooks was absent. To my amazement he was much better than most of those. I had seen and had been working with. So I promoted him to a line cook and from then on he has never seized to amaze me. - Douglas

I met Everton a few years ago, just shortly after he migrated to the US. He came to work in an establishment where I was the executive chef. In only a few weeks in the department he started giving me a run for the money. With his help and knowledge my production level jumped by a mere 27% in only one month of his arrival. We started having diverse menus based on Caribbean flavors cooking Asian foods. The customers were so thrilled and impressed by the new dishes and word quickly spread throughout the city of Colorado Springs. Since then we have become best cooking partners and best of friends.
