All of Chef Marlon Alexander's best moments in life are centered around food. His love affair with cuisine began shortly after a night out in Southern California’s trendy, upbeat Belmont Shores neighborhood. A chance encounter with a delectable braised short rib dish sealed the deal and he has been cooking ever since. Fast-forwarding years later, Chef Marlon Alexander has refined the dish that began his passion for cooking. His braised short ribs with red wine reduction, Swiss chard, and polenta has been enjoyed worldwide. Chef Marlon Alexander’s short ribs have been served and appreciated by everyone from his elite private chef clientele to a former President of the United States. In between his courtship with food on the upscale streets of Southern California, Chef Marlon Alexander attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu, and continues to love making people smile, enjoy, and appreciate the love and artistry Chef Marlon Alexander puts into each and every one of his culinary creations.
