31-year-old Filipino, Paul Qui, achieved culinary stardom after winning the ninth season of Bravo’s Top Chef in 2011. Throughout the course of the show, Paul out-cooked fellow cheftestants, Chris Crary, Beverly Kim, and Sara Grueneberg. Paul has been passionate about cooking his entire life, first making his interest known by attending the Texas Culinary Academy in Austin.

Paul left the academy to train under renowned chef Tyson Cole at Uchi, where he worked his way from a simple stage to chef de cuisine in a rather short period. The two have formed a rather strong bond over the years, as Paul currently serves as executive chef at Cole’s other Austin eatery, Uchiko.

While at Uchiko, Paul partnered with fellow Uchi chef, Moto Utsunomiya, to open a line of food trucks called Eastside King. As executive chef, Paul designed a unique Asian menu for their Austin eatery on wheels, catering to late-night patrons and those looking for a hot lunch. After enlisting three food trucks, Paul and Moto decided to open their first brick and mortar Eastside King, offering hungry customers a fixed location to order their delectable Asian cuisine.

Never one to pass on a major opportunity, Paul became a cheftestant on the ninth season of Top Chef: Texas. Paul’s unique blend of French and Japanese cuisine dazzled judges, winning him the competition. In the culinary world, Paul is no stranger to this level of recognition. In 2012, James Beard gave Paul the award for the “Best Chef, Southwest,” and StarChefs.com gave him the Rising Star Award, too.

As a rather decorated chef, Paul tries to incorporate different flavors he’s experienced into his life. Despite his passion for French and Japanese cuisine, Paul also attempts to incorporate Southeast Asian influences into his delicacies, drawing on memories from his homeland, the Philippines. In the summer of 2014, Paul was invited aboard the Top Chef at Sea celebrity cruise, aboard the Celebrity Solstice, set to sail on the 15th of August.
