Chef Trini
In John 21:16 Jesus is speaking with Simon Peter

“Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?”

He said unto him “Yea, lord; thou knowest that I love thee”.

He said unto him “Feed my sheep”.

Based on this scripture TriniKim Food for the Soul has evolved. We have been commanded to feed one another with food that is made with natural ingredients and full of true love. Ingredients which, feed, fuel and heal your mind, body and soul.

Chef Trini is a personal friend to the local farmers that supply him with “Natural Certified” Ingredients from locally grown Urban Farms that uses no GMO’s or Pesticides in Baltimore City.

Born in Trinidad & Tobago of multi –racial parentage, he was taught foremost by his Chinese, East Indian, Spaniard and African American Grandparents to make the Food that is prepared and made with love and later by the National Culinary School of Trinidad and Tobago.


Kim, Is a Baltimore Native, Registered Nurse Entrepreneur & “Foodie”

In 2010, she lost her eye sight and was diagnosed with Diabetes. While struggling to regain her vision and decrease her blood sugar levels, she wondered what she could eat. Would her food have to be bland and boring? Were there were any magic foods that would make this condition just go away, and with such a busy schedule, who would cook her meals?

As a Registered Nurse Consultant for Assisted Living Facilities, and High Risk Medically Compromised Clients, she shared her condition with colleagues, & friends. Much to her surprise she was not alone. There were many others needing specialty diets, with busy schedules and food allergies. But where could she go for help? It had not been that long ago that “Chef Trini” stepped out in full time pursuit of his own cooking career. Yet he really was perfect for the task at hand. Who had more knowledge with spices & herbs then Trini? After all he had created a specialty formula for their Medically Fragile Grandson and cooked daily specialty meals from scratch for her Medically Fragile father and their terminally ill friend.
