Most recently Plouffe was Sous-Chef de Cuisine with Aramark Corp, providing his management and culinary skills in directing the food preparation operations for the 3 million square foot New Orleans Convention Center.
Chef Robert’s experience includes Pastry Chef responsibilities at the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, and five years with executive positions within kitchens of the Hilton Luxury Collection in New Orleans, Jamaica, & Fort Lauderdale.
