Kitchen Manager & Chef

Antoine Golden

“My dad was a cook. It’s in me. I try to make the best meals possible for the homies outside. Sometimes a guest will come back just to say that the food tasted great. Feeding people here is uplifting,” says Antoine our new chef. “I’ve struggled myself like a lot of people. I even slept in my car at one time. It seems like a flip of the coin you know? I could be on the other side of the doors.”

Antoine is a well-seasoned cook with culinary school training and 25 years of experience. We’re lucky to have him on staff to carry out the Blanchet House mission. Please welcome Antoine in the comments.
