Chef Kahlil has been practicing the art of fine food preparation for over two decades. His training began in the late 80's creating some of his family's favorite dishes at home. After working in various restaurants throughout high school, Kahlil decided to "formalize" his training when he pursued a career in the illustrious United States Army. During his tenure in the US Army Kahlil worked his way up the ranks to Sous Chef. Gaining vast experience with various cuisines, Kahlil had the opportunity to work in one of the busiest units at Ft. Bragg that served over 4200 meals per day.

While on tour at Ft. Riley, KS, Kahlil moonlighted as Sous Chef for Clyde's Steakhouse and Italian eatery. Working at Clyde's created Kahlil's strong passion in Italian cuisine. After dedicating nearly six years of service, Kahlil decided to learn about the front of the house so he took on a position as Assistant General Manager at Don Pablo's. After completing his management training at Don Pablo's, Kahlil quickly found his way back to the what he affectionately calls the "heart of the house" in the kitchen! He decided to move from the front of the house into the position of Kitchen Manager to hone his skills with Mexican meals!

Having cooked for many years professionally and for friends and family Kahlil was encouraged to establish a company that has a vision of "Making Your Culinary Wishes a Reality." So in 1999, Chef Kahlil made his start as a personal chef by catering parties for friends, family and colleagues as a way to make extra money. Word quickly spread of his innovative, tasty and soulful dishes, and soon "Catering To Your Whims" was born. Catering To Your Whims... is an extension of Chef Kahlil's creative techniques.

Chef Kahlil is known for taking his passion for using creativity, mixing exotic herbs and seasonings into every meal, and sharing it with others.“ Chef Kahlil's specialties include Classic American, Seafood Entrees, Creole Cuisine and Nouveau Soul food with Caribbean accents.

In 2004, Chef Kahlil was invited to Los Angeles to participate in the Black Cuisine Expo culinary competition that was hosted by Jay Anthony Brown in which won for his famous Sauteed Cajun Crabs.

In 2005, Chef Kahlil cooked for the Pervis Ellison Foundation fundraiser event, in which the proceeds helped at risk youth athletes participate in The Pervis Ellison Basketball clinic.

In 2007, Chef Kahlil was charged with becoming the Executive Chef for Bethany Baptist Church one of the fastest growing ministries on the East Coast (23,000 members) under the leadership of Bishop David G. Evans.

In 2008, Chef Kahlil was brought on board to cook for New Jersey Nets, starting guard Devin Harris.
