EXECUTIVE CHEF & vISIONARY

Chef Rob’s appetite for cooking may stem back to the festive eclectic cooking in his grandparents home, or maybe it was the frugal gourmet cooking shows that he watched throughout his youth. Whatever it may have been, at a very young age Masone was certain of his culinary career ahead and set out to learn and apprentice under some of the best in the industry.       

For several years, Chef Rob worked as the Executive Chef the Mash House in Fayetteville, NC where he added his unique touches and helped to put the restaurant and himself on the “map”. After leaving the Mash House, Chef Rob opened his own restaurant The “Braz-N-Rabbit” in the heart of downtown Fayetteville where he really began to share his culinary vision and soon thereafter discovered the Upscale Catering world and shifted his culinary focus and drive towards that side of the coin.

In early 2006, Chef Masone started serving as the Executive Chef for B&B Catering inc., one of the premiere catering and event planning companies in the south east. Where he specialized in hands on culinary experiences, fairy tale wedding receptions, Wine Pairings, and one of a kind menu’s he designed for a client list that included

Senators, Congressmen, Governors, foreign dignitaries, Military Generals and the Vice President of the United States.

During his tenure at B&B, Masone helped to design the 9200 sq. ft. kitchen which has turned out to be one of the most innovative commercial kitchens in NC.

In July of 2011, Chef Masone had the distinct opportunity to be the first ever American Chef to travel to Dubai and Kabul Afghanistan to represent the United States in a culinary showdown with the countries Golden Chef on the International television show “59 Minutes” the Afghans extremely popular version of “Iron Chef”.

For almost 10 years now, Masone has been traveling both locally and nationally to share, teach and demonstrate his cutting edge culinary visions, to event planners and chefs from all over the globe at the Annual Event Solutions & Cater Source conference held in Las Vegas. In addition to teaching and demonstrating in Vegas, Chef Rob has worked in hotels and casinos such as The Paris, Balleys, The Metropolitan and Caesars Palace while working side by side with some of the best chefs and event planners in the industry to help produce and execute the opening Gala for Cater Source.

In March of 2012, Masone took Charlotte by storm he agreed to partner with local business men Wayne Miller & Kurt Hogan and dive back into the restaurant world by taking the position of Executive Chef at Heist Restaurant & Brewery in Charlotte, NC. While continuing to execute his role as Executive Chef Masone launched Heist’s off site event division and took on the additional role of Executive Chef & CEO of HB Events & Experiences.

The Charlotte Museum of History has worked with Executive Chef Rob Masone for over two years in several capacities. We are very happy with the overall event that he produces: the food, decorations, set up, clean up and staffing are always fantastic!

We worked with Chef Rob on a very important top donor event. This event is very important to us and Chef Rob has always delivered a quality production. Our guests enjoy the evening because they enjoy the atmosphere and the food. They consistently mention this in their comments.

We have also worked with Chef Rob when other groups have hired him to create their events and they rent the Charlotte Museum of History as the venue. Chef Rob is easy to work with, his staff is excellent, and he works with the museum staff very well.

We are always confident in working with Chef Rob or in recommending his business to others. He creates very special events, provides creative and delicious food, and he is the consummate professional. You will not be disappointed!
