The Devotional Chef The Home of God and Good Food Devotional Chef Bio Television Program OverviewUnique Concept & Merchandising Opportunities “American Comfort Food never tasted so good…So let’s Bless It UP!!!”
Meet The Devotional ChefMy culinary point of view is “American Comfort Food”. To me, American Comfort Foods are foods that invoke warmth to yourtummy and soul. These are foods that say “hearty” and “naturally flavorful” food. American Comfort Food is meant to be sharedwith family and friends, sometimes at Sunday dinners after church at Grandma’s house. American Comfort Food recipes are amelting pot for our great food culture in the USA and include recipes from all regions of the country.In 2003, I published the Devotional Cookbook (1st printing). I had written letters to many nationally renowned men and womenof the cloth – Pope John Paul II, Billy Graham, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, etc. – asking them for their favorite recipe and for adevotional to be included with my recipes in my cookbook. The response was strong. Several of these national figures have nowpassed away. Today, I sincerely count their recipes and devotionals as some of my favorites in my cookbook The DevotionalCookbook.I became interested in cooking by watching my Grandfather, who retired as a civilian cook for the Department of the Navy. As achild, he took me to his work at the Naval Hospital in Philadelphia. He was a good man and an excellent chef. I used to watch himcook and ask him so many questions. Years later, when he found out I was going to go to culinary school, he was elated. Afterpublishing The Devotional Chef Cookbook, I was featured in a half page article in the cooking section of The Trenton Times. MyGramps saw it in the paper at the senior daycare center and commented to me about it when I visited him. Gramps, walking on acane by now, hobbled slowly with me to the door. He turned and said “Bobby I Love You And I’m Proud Of You.” You see, Istruggled at life, failing for many years to be somebody. It was not until I asked God let my Gramps see my conversion from drugaddict, to preacher, to The Devotional Chef, and finally, to a successfully published author that I realized a positive change. As Iwalked to my car He hugged me! My Gramps was my hero, my inspiration and my best friend. He lived well into his 90s.My Ministry is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be blessing to whomever God allows me to minister. Rev. Lacy ismarried to Paula K. Lacy. They have 3 adult children and 2 lovely grandchildren. Both Reverend and Mrs. Lacy are ordained andlicensed ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They serve as staff ministers in White Dove Ministries and in the evangelisticfield.

Following in the footsteps of Jesus, I use food to soften hearts, nourishbodies and create relationships. My vision is to establish a men’s and family facility, a local church, a soup kitchen, a food pantryoutreach and a child assistance foundation.
