Youssef enrolled into The Lincoln Culinary Institute in Columbia, Maryland in 2010. After graduation, he worked at The Maryland Club, the oldest private club in the U.S. and The Maryland Jockey Club - Preakness Stakes. He has coordinated and participated in multiple off-site catering establishments and events, ranging from 100 attendees upward to thousands. Including many functions serving public figures such as Gene Simmons, John Harbaugh, Michael Phelps, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake, Brooks Robinson and the Baltimore Ravens celebratory party for O.J Brigance. In addition, the 2013 Preakness Meet allowed him to play a major role in the largest farm to table movement in the country.
After gaining experience working within the kitchen brigade, including working as Chef De Partie, Youssef earned his certification in 2012 and was ultimately promoted to Executive Chef. His main goal for attending culinary school was, not only to earn his license, but to also focus on and learn the foundations of culinary arts, in hopes to one day lead his own kitchen staff. He was afforded this opportunity to do this during his reign as Executive Chef of the Maryland Jockey Club. Here, Chef oversaw and lead the daily functions and operations of three restaurants and six concession stands daily, as well as during peak events at Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park. He was exposed to how to run and manage a kitchen early on in his career, leading prestigious horse-racing events such as the Octoberfest, Maryland Millions, Derby Days and the Belmont Stakes. In his words “Holding the keys to an operation as large as the MJC was a priceless experience and one in which at most times didn't feel like work because I was so indulged with food from every aspect!”
He currently operates his own food truck and catering business since September 2014, servicing the Greater Baltimore/Metropolitan area, providing the best quality and tasty foods to patrons in his community.
