Our Kitchen & Cuisine
What does ROHO mean?
The Spanish word “rojo” (pronounced “roho”) means red, a color that represents the passion, love, flavors and synergy that goes into our cooking.
Roho Kitchen is an abode for everything culinary. We are a family-owned business established in 2008, located in the heart of Broward specializing in full service catering for social events and weddings, corporate lunches, team buildings and cooking classes.
In addition, Roho Kitchen offers culinary experiences at our venue such as hands-on cooking classes, wine and food pairings and underground social dinners. Our event space is available for meetings, networkers and private events for up to 45 guests.
The talent behind the pots and pans.
Jorge Montes is the charismatic Executive Chef behind Roho Kitchen. Peruvian-born, Miami-raised Chef, Jorge was most happy in the kitchen with his mom and grandmother. Those mouthwatering scents, bold flavors and warm laughs created a joyous and memorable environment that cemented his love and appreciation for food.
Jorge began his career at Two Chefs in South Miami at the age of 17, where he climbed the ranks to become the restaurant’s Executive Sous Chef and their cooking school’s Culinary Director. Jorge has also been instrumental in opening several of South Florida’s hottest hotels including Il Lugano alongside celebrity chef Todd English and the W South Beach.
In 2008, ready to begin a new adventure, Jorge co-founded Roho Kitchen with the same passion for food and a vision to build more than just a business. His food style can be described as global fusion as it often reflects his love of world cuisines, exotic spices and diverse cooking techniques.
An Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale alum and hall of famer, Jorge graduated top of his culinary class and is a two-time state championship winner as captain of the culinary team for AIFL. Fun fact, Jorge has taught over 1,000 cooking classes with about 25,000 students throughout his career.
We pride ourselves in bringing a fresh and vibrant approach to the cuisine we serve. We don’t eat to live, we live to eat and truly believe that food is a way of sharing, caring and living. -Chef Jorge Montes
