Kent Rathbun, Iron Chef Champion and a Beard Award-nominated American chef and restaurateur. His restaurants include Abacus, in Dallas, TX, upscale restaurant chosen as most popular in Dallas by the 2007 edition of the Zagat Survey, and Jasper’s in Plano, The Woodlands and Austin.
After rapidly rising through the ranks of some of the world’s finest restaurants, Chef Kent Rathbun continues to demonstrate his culinary skills not only with the expansion of restaurant concepts but also with his full-service catering company and newly launched line of products, Kent Rathbun Elements.
Rathbun’s roots are firmly set in food. At the age of nine, he discovered his passion for culinary creativity and began learning the skills and techniques needed to become the renowned and impressive chef that he is today. Starting as an apprentice at La Bonne Auberge, a five-star French restaurant located in Kansas City, Missouri, Rathbun gained the experience of working with high-end ingredients and learning the art of perfect preparation. Preparation was something Rathbun came to value, and that sense of significance continued with him as he moved from kitchen to kitchen, working with some of the best chefs in the country.
