Profile Information

Executive Chef/President
JCL Global Culinary LLC
What best describes my company
Chef Carmen Cappello was born in Philadelphia in 1977 and has always been intrigued by food, flavors, and technique. He comes from a background of Sicilian tradition and moved to Atlanta in 1996 right after the Olympics.

Chef Cappello has worked for some of the most influential chefs on the East Coast including Chef Georges Perrier and Francesco Martorella of Le Bec Fin and Brasserie Perrier, Master Chef Jack Shoop, Master Chef Alfonzo Constriani, Thomas Ryan, Phillippe Haddad and Scott Serpes of TWO. Urban licks.

Chef Cappello has made a lasting impression in kitchens across Atlanta, as Executive Chef at both M!X, where he was given three stars by Atlanta Magazine and Creative Loafing for his work at M!X; and at Sweet Lowdown in Midtown Atlanta, where he blurred the boundaries between Southern Cuisine, French technique, Asian Flavors and Italian products creating what he called New South Brasserie. “It’s about showing what you can do with what people think is a simple cuisine and elevating it to its fullest potential.”

Today, Chef Carmen is the president/co-owner of JCL Global Culinary LLC. His company specializes in restaurant marketing, consulting, cooking demonstrations and advertising, as well as kitchen design and beer, wine and tequila dinners held all over the city of Atlanta.

Scott was let go the night we took over. My brother is the Exec and I am the managing partner and pastry chef. We kept Chris Reid on to run the wine program.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
