Richard Blais is an educated chef – he graduated with an associate degree (AOS) in culinary arts from New York’s prestigious baking and pastry arts education center – The Culinary Institute of America. Richard studied the art of cooking under some of the world’s most renowned chefs – Ferran Adrià, Daniel Boulud and Thomas Keller, and after obtaining his degree, he continued to temper his skills in several prestigious restaurants such as Daniel, Chez Panisse, The French Laundry and el Bulli. In 2000, Richard transferred to Atlanta, Georgia where he founded a creative, forward-thinking culinary company – Trail Blais. Under his guidance and leadership, Trail Blais has designed and operated some of the most profitable eateries in Atlanta, including Flip Burger Boutique. These successful ventures have provided the basis for Richard Blais’ net worth.

In 2012, Richard Blais opened The Spence, a concept restaurant which, however, was closed in April 2016. In 2014, Blais opened another restaurant, this time in San Diego, California, named Juniper & Ivy, serveing a refined American cuisine with, as Richard Blais emphasized, “left coast edge”. In addition to all those mentioned above, Richard Blais alongside Jon Sloan, opened another restaurant in San Diego in 2015, which serves an all-day menu focused on various forms of chicken and eggs, “from fried to grilled and everything in-between” – The Crack Shack. It is certain that all these ventures have helped Richard Blais to increase the overall size of his net worth by a large margin.

Up to the present day, Richard Blais has shown that he is a true television personality, as he has taken part in several reality shows. He debuted in the fourth season of Bravo Network’s “Top Chef” when he finished second. In 2009, he appeared in the show’s spin off “Top Chef: Masters”, and in 2010 he won the “Top Chef: All Stars”. Besides these, Richard Blais had also appeared in Iron Chef America, as well as in “Guy’s Grocery Games”, a reality cooking game show in which he served as a judge. He tried his luck as a host also, first in “Hungry Games” and later in “Halloween Baking Championship” and Science Channel’s “Blais Off”. Currently, he hosts the YouTube show “Burger Lab”. Doubtlessly, all these accomplishments have raised the popularity of Richard Blais, as well as his restaurants which resulted in massive increments to his overall net worth.

In 2013, Richard Blais published his cookbook, “Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate” which was nominated for James Beard Award in 2013, adding to his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Richard Blais has been married to Jazmin since 2007, with whom he has two daughters. In 2011, he ran the ING New York City marathon and has since run two more.
