Chef Jarobi White, one quarter of A Tribe Called Quest and one half of EvitaN, has really stepped out and into the spotlight this summer as a force in the culinary world. Flexing his succulent skills, he brings his Eats, Rhymes and Life BBQ Series to Los Angeles this Labor Day Weekend.
Today is the kick-off for the 3-day hip-hop and eats soiree, set at Chef Roy Choi’s Koreatown hot spot, The Line Hotel. Chef Jarobi will be manning the grill and offering delectable treats like braised pork belly skewers, hoisin mustard bbq chicken, kimchi tuna and burger sliders, and grilled fruit salad. Equally palatable tunes will be jamming throughout the event and will be served by the talented Adrian Younge, Mona Lisa, Mr. Choc, Russell Peters and more on the ones and twos.
Chef Jarobi is clearly excited for this Labor Day weekend shindig and is especially looking forward to one icy menu item that is sure to be a hit. “I’ve been very fortunate to be doing some really, really, really good events, but this is gonna be crazy. The DJs I have, the food that we’re cooking, Roy’s putting shit on the menu, I got shit on the menu, it’s gonna be on the pool deck. Like, this is crazy! Yo, and they’re gonna have Hennessy popsicles, B! It’s gonna be so live!”
