Shift Drink VLOG ECO Chef Jo-Jo Doyle

The First ‘Shift Drink VLOG’ with Chef Jo-Jo

Welcome to the Shift Drink VLOG, from Chef Jo-Jo of E.C.O.

The ‘Shift Drink’ is a video blog (VLOG) created and presented by Chef Jo-Jo Doyle of Extreme Culinary Outfitters covering the F&B industry as a whole, what’s new, what’s old, chef life, line life, being a cook, kitchen life, back of house, front of house, serving, presentation, trends, dealing with customers and working together in F&B.

Sometimes you’ll find some ‘foodie’ feeback, rants and raves about trending industry topics, cookbook reviews , plus interviews with other chefs and industry leaders.

Always, we want to hear from you. Comment and join the discussion. We hope you’ll share and communicate with us – and each other.

Our goal is to unite the F&B industry to build bridges, not walls between us.  The kitchen, the front of house and the back of house is all ‘our house’ and ‘our style’, how we live and communicate our lives serving up taste and creativity to others.

The Who, What, & Why of the ECO Brand

My name is Jo-Jo Doyle and I am a chef. I’ve been cooking for my entire adult life. Not as long as most but, longer than a lot. From front of house to back of house, I’ve done a great deal. I’ve worked the line, had a catering company, opened restaurants and closed restaurants. I’ve worked in bakeries, mom & pops, and 4 star restaurants. I’ve worked for small corporations and big corporations doing some of the largest events in the country and I still love it! I love the good & I love the really, really bad! Most of all, I love that our industry is so bonded. As the founder of Extreme Culinary Outfitters, which is now a completely family-run business, I want to cultivate a platform to help mold and shape the industry that we love so much.

James Wilfong is the Chef De Cuisine at The English Grill. James and I used to work together a year or so ago. Still to this day James put on one of the best tastings I have ever seen or been a part of. I knew the night was going to be
