Born in Asheville N.C , and having the chance to stay in Hawaii, California and Washington st as a military brat I came back to my Community and City to bring the Flavors. Dream chasing on track. Known in food circles as The Flavor King, Chef Clarence Robinson loves cooking great food and making people laugh, which is evident in his business, Cooking with Comedy Catering. When he’s not bringing fun and exciting meals at The Ingles Table, Clarence is the Executive Chef at the Veranda Cafe in Black Mountain. Clarence feeds the person with amazing food, and feeds the soul with a good laugh in trying times. Entertaining… inspiring… and downright talented, Chef Clarence doesn’t just bring the flavor to his food – but to everything he does. Long live The Flavor King!
