Chef Rodelio Aglibot
"THE FOOD BUDDHA" BRINGS A LIFETIME OF EXPERIENCE AND A MELTING POT OF FLAVORS TO BRANCH.
Known the world over as “The Food Buddha” because of his dedication to his heritage and his approach to creative menu development, Aglibot has been featured on many national television programs for his New Asian cuisine, as well as Italian and American cooking. In the summer of 2011, his show “Food Buddha” premiered on The Learning Channel (“TLC”). He has also appeared on a number of national and local television shows including; “TODAY Show”, CBS Morning Show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, Food Network’s “The Best Of”, “The Steve Harvey Show”, Style Network’s “It’s my Party”, “Extra”, Fox’s “Live Like a Star” and “Entertainment Tonight”, as well as local morning shows in Chicago, LA, NYC, Minneapolis and Miami.
A three-time James Beard Foundation Dinner Participant, Rodelio actively participates in the promotion of the Culinary Arts as a guest speaker and judge for cooking competitions. One of his proudest accomplishments in 2012 is his non-profit charity named “In Chef’s Hands”, which connects individuals with special needs who have a passion for food and cooking with established Chefs in the Chicago land area.
Aglibot, a tireless creative soul, continues his passion for travel, knowledge and enlightenment. His unpretentious food style, knowledge of ingredients and exciting food traditions are trademarks to his personality. In his spare time, he travels, plays golf, paints, writes, speaks Spanish and Italian and volunteers. He lives his life by his own philosophy: “A tragedy in life is not to find oneself and one’s passion...an even greater tragedy is to know one’s passion and deny oneself of its treasures.”
