About the Author

Chef Richard Ingraham was born and raised in Miami, Florida and became a culinary enthusiast at an early age. His culinary training took place at the Art Institute of Atlanta. A few years later, he was offered what is now his current position as private chef for the NBA’s Dwyane Wade. He has been responsible for the diet that keeps the star fit, toned, and healthy on and off the court for the past thirteen years.

In 2010, he leveraged his world-class training and passion for fine cuisine into a culinary-business partnership with Soley Gonzalez and created a network of private chefs called ChefRLI. The company has served dozens of NBA, NFL, MLB, and entertainment clients across the country. Some notable current and past clients include: BET, Sean Combs, Manny Machado, John Wall, Chris Bosh, Novack Djokovic, Kelly Rowland, GOYA Foods, POMI Italia, and Blake Griffin.

In 2014, the company worked with celebrity-loved clothing line Peace Love World to create a line dedicated to foodies called Peace Love Cook.

As GOYA Foods’ My Plate Ambassador and Partner, Ingraham is also tasked with promoting alternative cooking methods to parents of school-aged children.

Chef RLI also combined its charitable efforts with Beyond the Boroughs Scholarship Fund founder and NFL vet Tutan Reyes to provide healthier eating options to kids in New York City. The Ben and Sarah Gibson Culinary Scholarship was created as a result of the partnership to help high school graduates attend culinary school.

Ingraham is also as advisory board member of the Miami Culinary Institute and Chef Start. And, he was selected for South Beach Food and Wine Festival’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate at the Beach.”

Dwyane Wade is a guard for the NBA's Chicago Bulls. He began his career with the Miami Heat where he won three NBA championships. He’s also a 12-time NBA All Star and led Team USA to a gold medal in the 2008 Olympics.
