VooDoo Krewe

The Voodoo Chef is coming to Tampa, and he is bringing his Krewe. These Krewe members, who have been locked into a “Gastronomic Trance”, are forced to wander the earth forever. They spend their days invading kitchens and infusing their own brand of spices and sauces into recipes, making it impossible NOT to worship the flavor.

It is the Voodoo Chef’s mission to cast a spell over everyone in Tampa Bay sharing “His Passion”, “His Future”, and “His HOPE!” as he casts his magic over all he comes across.

When the Planets are aligned, and the Moon is just right, the people of Tampa Bay will have an opportunity to meet with the Voodoo Chef. You will bear witness to the magic, as you watch these mystical recipes come to life.

Study well, and you too will be able to cast a spell over those you wish to do your bidding.


Founder:            Erik Youngs

Established:       July 1, 2016

Mission:             The Krewe shall provide a forum to socialize, interact, network, mentor, provide charitable services, and hunger relief through fundraising and volunteerism in support of all members of the Food Community.
