As part of our partnership with Bravo's Emmy® Award-winning TV show, Top Chef, Celebrity presents Isaac Takes On, a new original video series featuring Top Chef fan favorite and Chef Emeril Lagasse protégé, Isaac Toups. Isaac packed his knives and set sail aboard Celebrity Reflection® to go head-to-head against the most talented chefs in the ship's galley along with local chefs from our Caribbean ports of call. Can he handle the boiler room atmosphere at sea? Watch below as he leaves his comfort zone behind and takes on some of the most thrilling tests of his culinary career.
Chef Isaac Toups has earned rave reviews for his updated approach to Cajun cuisine at his Toups' Meatery restaurant. His culinary style is the direct result of learning from his grandmothers up in the heart of Cajun Country in Rayne, LA and a decade of fine dining experience in Emeril Lagasse's New Orleans Kitchens. A 2014 and 2015 James Beard Semi-finalist for "Best Chef of the South", Isaac says, "All I have ever wanted to do is to offer my version of Cajun cuisine and to recreate the dining experience around my family's table."
