Palmetto youth cook and perform with celebrity chef

Youngsters call him by his last name, Karimi, as if he were a magician like Houdini.

Some parents might say Robert Karimi is indeed a magician because he convinces children to follow his self-described “joyous rebellious plan” to eat right.

Known around the world as ThePeoplesCook, Karimi has just completed a six-week residency at the Palmetto Youth Center in Palmetto and 13th Avenue Dream Center in Bradenton working with an estimated 200 local students.
