A 24 year veteran of the restaurant industry, Stuart Reb Donald has worked every position from dish washer up to chef. Most recently he was the Executive Chef at Mars Hill Café in Mobile, AL. In 2003 he combined his love of food and gift for writing to produce his first cookbook Amigeauxs – Mexican/Creole Fusion Cuisine (4 Star Publishing). His second cookbook, Third Coast Cuisine, has received considerable national and international acclaim including being nominated for a Gourmand World Cookbook Award. He has written hundreds of articles for both print and electronic media including interviews of noted chefs like Bobby Flay, Ted Allen, Michael Symon, Tory McPhail and Susan Irby. He is the author of WannabeTVchef.com. He has been a regular guest on TV shows along the Gulf Coast and often uses his culinary skills for good by helping to raise money for organizations like the American Cancer Society and the Bay Area Food Bank.
Stuart has also written two works of fiction proving that he’s more than just an award winning chef and cookbook author. He is also the author of A More Perfect Union (available in paperback or for Kindle) the suspenseful tale of US President Alexander Lawrence who’s last living family member, his beautiful daughter, dies of an overdose and her body is dumped in a trash can in New Orleans’ famed French Quarter. A More Perfect Union was a stunning debut for the musician-turned-chef-turned writer from Mobile, Alabama.
His latest work of fiction 9.999: A Cautionary Tale of Greed, Lust, and Avarice is the story of Roger Edinger and the part he played in the total collapse of the United States of America. Set in the very near future, 9.999 (Nine Ninety-nine Nine) is a sordid tale of deception and intrigue. It shines a light on how deviant and aristocratic Washington DC is, or in this case was. It proves that sometimes fiction is truer than truth.
