A native of Haiti, Chef Duprat developed his love of culinary arts as a young child during his time spent harvesting fresh ingredients from the land his family farmed and watching these ingredients be transformed into family feasts. From this early interest in the kitchen, Ron Duprat and His grandmother have successfully expanded his culinary calling to encompass numerous awards and nominations and a flourishing career as Executive Chef at one of the top rated Hotel Clubs Restaurant companies in America and the Caribbean, a Competitor on Bravo’s “Top Chef” and Host of “Bar Rescue New Orleans” on Spike TV.
Duprat’s culinary creations are inspired by French, Cajun, American and Haitian, and other various ethnic and world cultures. His Haitian heritage allows him to add the flair and wide range of bold flavors found in Caribbean cooking to other cuisines. “The style of my food reflects exquisite, sophisticated, contemporary, French cuisine with Caribbean influences,” “I focus on locally-grown products, seasonal ingredients, impeccable presentation, and cutting-edge menu choices to create a truly memorable dining experience.” A key element of my philosophy is that food should be as fresh and as local as possible. He has a carefully cultivated network of area growers/suppliers who enable Chef Ron to practice what he believes is best for procuring and serving food.
Duprat is affiliated with organizations that contribute and give back to the culinary community and people all over the work including American Culinary Federation, Real Men Charities, Inc., Black Culinary Alliance, No Kid Hungry, the College of Culinary Arts in Miami, and First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move!, and Basil Magazine’s Chef Council.
Ron is the featured Chef at our “Rums of the Caribbean Night” in the Grand Tasting Village at Nanny Cay Resort.
