You can practically taste Chef Raz Ademosu’s exotic life experiences in his wildly popular French-American comfort food. That’s because the Nashville chef’s dishes are direct results of growing up working with his grandmother, a caterer in rural Nigeria, coming of age and rising up the restaurant ranks in a French-American restaurant in London, and ultimately opening his own restaurant in America. All these influences converge into unforgettable comfort foods.

About The Food

Chef Raz attributes a great deal of his success to his Nigerian grandmother’s recipes. A caterer in a rural area, she passed down to him a style of cooking and seasoning that transforms “Chef Z’s” familiar American-comfort food to completely unique, soul-soothing dishes. His crowd-pleasing fare paired with native Nigerian spices like African dry root and wild rice have garnered Raz rave reviews, and awarded him spots on The Food Networks “The Best Thing You Ever Ate” and QVC Television promoting his Jambalaya and Gumbo.

Meet The Owner

Chef Raz Ademosu, also known as Chef Z, first discovered the joys of cooking in his native Nigeria, where he helped his grandmother provide catering over an open fire. In the UK, he swiftly moved up the restaurant ranks as a dishwasher then kitchen manager at a French-American bistro. After visiting friends and deciding to settle in Nashville, Chef Z’s memories of his grandmother’s flavorful recipes and catering inspired him to create his now-famous Cajun-inspired dishes.
