NEW YORK - November 1, 2011 - Bravo serves up a new slice of culinary drama with "Chef Roblé & Co." as Roblé Ali risks it all to cater the biggest events New York City has to offer, premiering on Sunday, December 4 at 10pm ET/PT. Chef Roblé Ali has cooked for everyone from red carpet rock stars to award-winning actors, but nothing has prepared him for the stresses and strains of setting up his own high-end catering company. From a doggie wedding in the Hamptons to a Bollywood inspired birthday party, this series follows Roblé and his team as they create world-class cuisine and produce jaw-dropping events for a range of top name clients and celebrities including Vanessa Williams, Rachel Dratch and Kandi Burruss from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

In the premiere episode, Chef Roblé meets his first client- a glamorous New York socialite who wants a creepy, carnival themed birthday party. Roblé wonders whether he's bitten off more than he can chew after finding out she has a list of demands such as a live monkey and only being allowed to serve red, white and black foods. Roblé is joined by his older sister Jasmine, who has relocated from Atlanta to help him start his business. Other members of the catering team include Artie and Shawn who handle the front of house and Adam, Ché, Kikuyo and D'Andre in the kitchen. For a sneak peek, visit: bravotv.com/chef-roble-and-co/season-1/videos/the-kitchen-gets-hot-and-exciting. Chef Roblé Ali was always fascinated with food and cooking. He showed talent in the kitchen at a young age after learning from his grandfather, Jesse Harris, who was a professional chef. At 15, Roblé began working in his first professional kitchen and continued to develop as a chef throughout his high school years. Upon graduation, he enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York where he broadened his knowledge of food.

After quickly being identified as one of the hottest up-and-coming chefs, Roblé worked through the ranks as the youngest sous chef ever at Abigail Kirsch, an elite New York catering company. He worked side by side with Chef Chris Santos as Chef de Cuisine of Restaurant Mojo and on the opening of Stanton Social. In addition, Roblé was hired by nightlife mogul, Noah Tepperberg, to be the executive chef and design the menu at Avenue, a popular gastro-lounge in New York City. Adding to his already impressive resume, Roblé has catered for celebrities including Michael Jackson, President Clinton, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z to name a few.

"Chef Roblé & Co." is produced by Red Line Films for Bravo. Al Szyamanski, Peter Franchella, Aaron Rothman and Toby Faulkner serve as executive producers.
