Chef Richard L. Austin, Tonight… on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Chef_Richard_Austin

It’s not uncommon to be in touch with my high school classmates, especially with the popularity of various social media options that we have today, which makes it all possible. I get excited to see and hear, when so many of my classmates are successful and doing well.

Like Richard L. Austin (pictured above). He was the heartthrob of almost every female in my class at Passaic County Technical and Vocational High School in Wayne, NJ. Richie (as he was known), was handsome, athletic, buff and charming. He was so cool, very polite but in a way, he made me nervous; I was a bit intimidated by his charisma.

Today, he is known as “Chef Austin“, a professional chef who specializes in Southern American/International cuisine and has been certified by the “American Culinary Federation“. Chef Austin also is owner and proprietor of his own business: “Austin’s Catering“.

Educated at Brunswick College in Brunswick, Georgia, Chef Austin has much to add to his accredited achievements, having appeared on The Savannah morning news; Brunswick News 6, Coastal Illustrated Magazine, Coastal Cuisine and Elegant Island magazine. Winner of over twenty five (25) culinary competitions, and now manufacturer of his very own seasonings, Chef Austin is truly accomplished. 

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio, as I catch up with this culinary genius and high school classmate, to discuss how he’s manufactured his own seasonings and the secret to his success. 

All “Conversation links” make it possible to access the show!

See you on the air but in the meantime sound off here!

        You are too funny Omar implying that he’s the “front man” but somehow I doubt it. Tracy’s pretty credible with her presentations and if it’s not right or it’s a LIE she’s the 1st to call it out. So I doubt this guy is NOT the real deal. Nice ENVY try though. LOL

        Can’t assume every guy that Blog Queen knows she had a romantic past with O_o that is immature and unrealistic. And if a lot of you read “Conversations Of A Sistah” you know doubt have a feel of her history, standards and beliefs. And no where in her story did I detect that she was a loose goose who dated freely and often. So please “STOP” with the speculation. It’s annoying.

        well to add my 2 cents….if all the girls in her h.s. was falling all ova him and based on his good looks I would say yeah her nervousness was because he was nice looking by the fact she said he intimidated her tells you she thought he was fine too or maybe she had a thing for him then

      11. What it do people?
        Nothing in Tra’s write up hints at anything remotely romantic past, present or futuristic with this dude. Then again, she is a savvy writer and LOVE to keep y’all guessing, thinking and speculating with the twist of one sentence like this one:: “He was so cool, very polite but in a way, he made me nervous; I was a bit intimidated by his charisma.” could mean something might not mean nothing. But this is Tra and she’s in the game of PROMOTING and PROVOKING haut conversation right?
