Meet the Chef!

Bobby Kirn - Poi Boy Catering

Hi! I'm Bobby Kirn and I'm the chef here at POI BOY Catering and Events.

From early on in my life, I've always had an interest in cooking. I come from a large family and good food always played an important part. From camping trip meals to full family luau's, cooking always brought my family together in unforgettable ways. My family is very diverse in the fact that part is from Hawai'i and part is from the Northern Nevada area. And from this diversity comes variations of food and recipes that are beyond tasty and are most definitely considered true, family recipes.

In regards to my cooking education, I attended Golden State Culinary Institute in Sacramento, CA and received my degree in culinary arts in 2001. I completed my apprenticeship inside Harrah's Reno. From there, and for the next 7 years, I worked in a variety of notable restaurants in the Reno area including Cafe Andriotte's, Harrah's Steak House, and Murrieta's Restaurant and Cantina. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my restaurant cooking experiences, having my own catering business had always been my dream. Meeting with people to discuss how to incorporate their specific tastes and individual styles into my food is what drives me. In 2005, while still working in Harrah's Steak House, I followed my dream and POI BOY Catering and Events was born. However, it wasn't until 2008 that I was able to focus solely on POI BOY. Today, I am very proud to say that POI BOY Catering and Events is busier than ever before!

Thanks so much for checking into POI BOY. I'm looking forward to working with you!
