Daryl Shular

Certified Master Chef


As if representing the US at the highest level is not enough, Shular has been recognized and featured in many media publications, including the prestigious American historical archives “The History Makers”. His induction into The History Makers in 2005 made Chef Shular one of the youngest ever and one of only a few African-American chefs elected for this achievement.

Master Chef Daryl Shular is not only one of the most talented and respected chefs in the country, but he is also one of America’s elite History Makers! In 2014 Chef Shular etched his name in the culinary history books by becoming the first African American and minority to successfully pass the grueling 130-hour; eight-day test known as the Master Chef exam. After years of preparation and personal sacrifice Chef Shular prevailed and earned the culinary industry’s highest honor, the designation known as Certified Master Chef (CMC).
