Edwin G. "aka" Chef Ed - HEAD CHEF
Edwin brings the heart and soul to the kitchen with his expertise in creating flavorful, traditional southern inspired dishes. His first taste of cooking was rooted in his father’s and grandmother’s kitchen on the Mississippi Delta. Edwin developed a passion of food from it’s natural beginnings to the serving of the finished product. This led him to taking on the teachings of produce and livestock and the many ways to prepare and serve. He got his first opportunity at the age of 15 in a Shoney’s Diner in Indiana. This was the beginning of his fruitful journey through 5-Star Country Clubs and Restaurants of Northern Virginia, The Brown Hotel of Louisville, KY, and the Palm Restaurant of Nashville, TN. Each stop along the journey introduced Edwin to great mentors to enhance his passion and experience while educating him of the culture to develop his signature style. Edwin brings to the management team his expertise in back of the house restaurant management. This along with his passion and the concept of combining his natural gifts to prepare traditional Southern meals and his culinary professional experience to bring forth a unique product makes Edwin accountable for consistency and quality of Po’ Green’s LLC products and the process from the back of the house to our guests table. Husband and father of 4, Edwin shares with his wife the same family values and hopes of a legacy that inspires his passion to succeed in making Po’ Green’s a recognized name for Southern Food and Barbecue. He does this in the name of his father Eddie Lee Green “aka” Po’ Green.
