Chef Darian moved to Buffalo from Jamaica when he was 20-years-old. He got his start as a chef by helping his mother run her "cook shop," back in Jamaica. He decided that he liked it and began to learn everything he could about cooking.
All of Chef Darian's hard work has paid off because not only is the personal chef to Stefon Diggs, he also has an e-cookbook, and his own company, The Plating Society, which provides in-home fine dining experiences.
Buffalo Bills Players Eat Lean, Low Fat and Lots of Pasta to Get Ready for Games
Chef Darian told me that Bills players eat lean meats with low fat profiles, pasta and grains like quinoa to get ready for games and to keep their bodies in peak condition. You'd be surprised, but some of them are even vegan. I've always been curious about what they eat. It's their job to be in great shape, so what they eat can make or break their performance abilities.
He says Stefon's favorite meals are breakfast for dinner, oxtails, and seafood. He says Gabe Davis loves seafood, oxtails, and pasta. Some of the players want bison steak, chicken breasts, meat without fat. Chef Darian says they each really have differing tastes.
In other Buffalo Bills' news, I was reading what Hassan wrote about the Buffalo Business Blitz getting a huge boost from Wegmans. The initiative to help small businesses affected financially by COVID-19 is organized by Josh Norman of the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, and the City of Buffalo. It's so exciting to see all of these good things happening for the team, the players, fans and the people who support them. I'm not a big football person, but all of these great things happening with the Bills and Buffalo puts a smile on my face!
