In Philadelphia’s culinary mosaic, Chef Rai Lewis shines brightly. A mastermind of plant based delights, Rai’s dishes are a fusion of nature’s best and heartfelt passion since her debut in 2017. 


Honing her skills under the tutelage of highly respected chefs such as Chef Deron Mahoney, Chef Janee Rollins, and Chef Tam Fuard, Rai’s plates are both vibrant and innovative. Each dish is a canvas, blending traditional vegan elements and fine dining techniques with modern flair. 


Beyond the stove, Rai’s spirit is multifaceted: an adventurer, art lover, and nature enthusiast. Her connection with plants extends to her beautiful collection in her home and frequent hiking explorations.


Central to Rai’s culinary journey is F.U.N. Kitchen and it’s been used as a vehicle to  break down stereotypes surrounding healthy food and educate, uplift, and support the community on the benefits of healthy living. Her passion for vegetable cuisine has earned her a reputation as a celebrity private chef, having catered to stars like Jill Scott and the Legendary Roots Crew. Rai’s talent is recognized and revered yet her dreams soar with hopes of one day serving the likes of J.  Cole. 


Highlighted by platforms like the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center and 6ABC, Chef Rai Lewis isn't just a chef; she’s a culinary trailblazer, setting new benchmarks with each creation.

I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
