About Kevin Roberts:

Kevin Roberts

Kevin Roberts’ knack for creativity and healthy eating in the kitchen can be seen, heard, and of course tasted. Growing up in kitchens and focusing his college studies on Health, Nutrition and Kinesiology, Kevin knows cooking from the inside out.

With two cookbooks in print, owner and executive chef of four sports bar/tavern concepts in San Diego and nationally known as a radio and TV personality, Kevin knows a thing or two about pleasing the young adults palate. His acclaimed cookbook, Munchies, is targeted towards the starving struggling to find quick, simple and tasty alternatives to the campus dining halls and fast foods. With recipes like west coast wings, tater tot hash and cinnamon roasted grapefruit, Roberts’ book expresses the sentiment that there is more to cooking than complex recipes and expensive ingredients. Kissing in the Kitchen, his second cookbook, aims to teach the novice chef how to prepare that romantic dinner that every girl or guy dreams of. His Sleep over Spinach and Make-out Macaroni illustrate that food is definitely the way to win anyone’s heart.

Aside from doing over a 100 national and local television shows, including The Today Show, CBS’ Early Show & being a regular on Better TV, he now hosts TLC’s BBQ PitMasters and lectures at university campuses nationwide.

Kevin was also a Top Ten Finalist on The Next Food Network Star, In addition, Roberts is the owner and Executive Chef at San Diego’s award-winning East Village Tavern & Bowl, one of the city’s hottest new downtown urban sports bar.

Roberts also travels the country with Dometic performing cooking demonstrations and shares recipes at trade and retail shows for the manufacturer. Kevin explains how to utilize appliances designed for RVs to make even a novice cook into a mobile master chef.

Raised by a single-mother who worked in restaurants in Los Angeles, Kevin Roberts was in the restaurant business at a very young age. With a lot of trial & error and with the help of his mom and nana, he taught himself to cook at the age of 8 as an act of “self-preservation.” To quote Roberts, “It was either cook or starve…”
