Meet Aquarius Harris of Cookitupfoods in South

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aquarius Harris.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Aquarius. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started just in my own hood in my Patna kitchen. I took it legit and went to school for culinary arts that had me to eat two certificates, my survsafe and levy restaurant diploma. Then, I just started cooking for the ATL and trying to get global.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has not been too smooth, I had to deal with not trusting people and putting more than what I give, I have learned to be successful business-man.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My business is mostly of creativity that I put in towards my food. I specialize in all my creations and definitely my seafood sauces.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I had a rough lifestyle. It could have been better but I chose a different route had to battle challenges with street gangs, fights and being homeless and deal with school. Everything that happened to me, I still manage to graduate high school and culinary school.
