is owner of Chefin’itUp Catering with Chef Nilka. Born in Monterey California, Chef Nilka grew up in Glen Cove, NY to a single mother who immigrated to America from Panama and raised her, alongside her sister and two brothers.
Unafraid of taking risks, CHEF NILKA took a chance and auditioned for Fox TV’s HELLS KITCHEN with Chef Gordon Ramsey. After completing the rigorous selection process, she was cast to be one of 16 contestants for the show vying for a chance to be Executive Chef at Chef Ramsey Savoy Restaurant in London. She worked hard, side by side with Chef Ramsey and even received a compliment from Chef Ramsey’s own mother, lauding Nilka’s steak as “first class”. Although, eliminated in episode 10, just shy of becoming one of the Final 6, she values the experience and friendships she made. It also served to strengthen her resolve to pursue her dreams.
Upon leaving Hell’s Kitchen Nilka was met by Chef Ramsey in the parking lot and told to “Walk out with your head held high, sadly, you are not ready but what you are ready for is to follow your dreams. Don’t stop”. And she didn’t. She accepted a position as Executive Chef at Retro Lounge in Freeport, NY where she created a menu of international fusion dishes that were lauded for their wonderful, savory flavors. While at Retro, her culinary mastery of steak was consistently praised, as her jerk rib eye became a standout dish and customer favorite.
The road to this point has not been an easy one. Having faced setbacks and obstacles in her life that would deter the average person, she has proven herself to be a go-getter of unparalleled proportions. Chef Nilka is a witty, outgoing, resilient, yet, no nonsense person with a fierce determination to succeed and reach her goals. Come hear amazing story and sample her cooking. Seating is limited.
