About Chef Binks

Buffalo, New York’s Celebrity Chef

Chef Steven Binks is an accomplished chef and successful entrepreneur in Western New York.  His business ventures in catering and restaurant management have earned him a solid reputation within the food service industry.  But it is his dynamic and colorful personality which has won the hearts and minds of the general public through his weekly television and radio shows, including  “Dine Out! Dine In! with Chef Binks”  broadcast in Buffalo, New York, Southern Ontario and Northern Pennsylvania on the CW television network (WNLO-TV, LIN Broadcasting) and WWKB-AM 1550 (Entercom Communications). Seasons with Chef Binks broadcast daily in “The Healthy Zone” on WGRZ Channle 2 (Gannett) and various other syndicated media outlets.

Beginning his formal training by earning an associate degree in culinary arts he then moved on to complete a 5 year apprenticeship through the  American Culinary federation by the age of 24.  From there, he honed his craft at a variety of fine restaurants, country clubs and food service operations in the Buffalo/Niagara region.   His entrepreneurial spirit led him to develop several specialty food service operations under the umbrella of the “Chef Binks” brand. 

Chef Binks has recently been inducted into the prestigious Chaine des Rotisseurs – an international, gastronomic society founded in Paris in 1950 whose membership is by invitation.  He also is the recipient of numerous restaurant and catering awards and accreditations.
