The African American Chefs Hall of Fame (formerly Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School) has received its 501c(3) designation from the I.R.S. and is now a public charity and Georgia non-profit organization.
The African American Chefs Hall of Fame is a recognition program that celebrates the living history of African American chefs and highlights those individuals whose extraordinary contributions have made American cuisine possible.
“Various aspects of the Hall of Fame have been available on the Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School website for years, but with a physical building, guests can now view portraits and film footage of the selected inductees, said Chef Joe Randall.”
“It’s really important for us to be able to document the history and contributions of African American chefs, and with this new building we’ll be able to preserve their history for decades to come, said Chef Randall.”
Cooking demonstrations will be conducted by various celebrity chefs on a monthly basis. Chef Joe Randall will also teach an occasional class from time to time. The next event will include a cooking demonstration on Saturday, March 25 from 6:30pm-9:30pm at The African American Chefs Hall of Fame, 5409 Waters Avenue, by Chef Joe Randall.

“There are some extraordinary people who have helped make American Cuisine an unparalleled platform for innovation that goes well beyond what we could have ever imagined,” said Chef Randall. “This program honors individuals who have pushed the boundaries to bring Southern Cookery to life and make it a desirable resource enjoyed by millions.”
Master Chef Daryl L. Shular is not only one of the most talented and respected chefs in the country, but he is also one of America’s elite History Makers! He will will be doing a cooking demonstration on Saturday, May 13, 2017. In 2014 Chef Shular etched his name in the culinary history books by becoming the first African American and minority to successfully pass the grueling 130-hour; eight day test known as the Master Chef exam. After years of preparation and personal sacrifice Chef Shular prevailed and earned the American Culinary Federation’s highest honor, the designation known as Certified Master Chef (CMC).
