Chef Terence Tomlin's Road to Recovery After Suffering Two Strokes and Becoming Paralyzed

Chef Terence Tomlin's Road to Recovery After Suffering Two Strokes and Becoming Paralyzed

On this episode we have chef Terence Tomlin. He was the executive chef at the restaurant Hawthorne in Washington DC. In November 2017 he suffered two strokes while working at the restaurant, leaving the right side of his body paralyzed. He has been able to regain much of his strength, though he has still not regained full use of his right side. Since then, he’s gone on to compete in Baltimore’s Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament, and won the seafood competition at The Maryland Foodie Fest. Terence current lives and works in Chesapeake, VA, and does both private and public dinner parties under the name Terence Tomlin Powered by Dinner with the Hortons. This episode is one of our Covid Zoom Sessions.

In this episode we discuss his road back to cooking after the stroke, making amends, continuing to cook during the Covid pandemic, cooking competitions, his ice cream company and cooking at home during self-isolation. You can find his YouTube channel here.

Chefs & Businesses Mentioned: Chef Stiletto, Justin Holloman, Just Call Me Chef, Modernist Pantry.
