Chef Diablo

Founding Chef and Owner / a.k.a Night Samuel

Chef Diablo believes one should cook with desire and love – two ingredients that can’t be found on store shelves. It can only come from within. This philosophy and a will to continue even when he thought himself he couldn’t, is what has made him and Cream Ridgewood the hidden gems that they are. Discovering a love for cooking at an early age watching his mom make various, seemingly random ingredients, come alive into magnificent Caribbean dishes, peaked his hidden culinary interests quickly. Years later, after attending the French Culinary Institute in New York City and studying with various culinary giants like Chef Jay Medford and Chef Enzo Neri, Chef Diablo has carved out his own niche in Ridgewood that is growing bigger and better every day
