Keith Corbin Is The Only James Beard Nominated Chef Who Started By Cooking Cocaine

While drugs changed hands and bullets flew outside, his grandmother’s kitchen was a haven for him. James Beard nominated chef, Keith Corbin literally grew up in the drug game and ended up working in the kitchen of the maximum security prison where he served seven years as an adult. So what would you do if after serving your time, you were both a skilled cook in a restaurant where you gained valuable experience, and a skilled cocaine cook, where they paid you very well for your time? Would you continue to do both for as long as you could? Or would you make a decision to leave one life behind for good, and pursue the other with everything you had?
