Chef Spotlight: Paul Nimmo

Southern Gaming: How did you get your start in the kitchen?

Paul Nimmo: I began my culinary career making pasta by hand at a Northern Italian Restaurant in Michigan. I was the guy in the window, talking to the guests while rolling and hanging the fresh pasta. After a short time in the window, my chef offered me an opportunity to learn the other positions in the kitchen, prepping then working the different stations on the line. Now, three degrees and three decades later, I still use what I was taught in that kitchen, every day.

Located just two miles south of Memphis, hot summers and cotton fields embellished the otherwise unremarkable region. Then, in 1990, legislation legalized casino gaming, and the race was on to build the biggest and the best facilities to meet the demands of gamblers and to compete with the booming business being had in Las Vegas. The tax revenue generated was an immediate benefit to the county school systems, road ways and downtown district. Today there are eight casinos boasting almost $1 billion in annual revenue and providing thousands of jobs.
