Ralph is a highly accomplished baker and he established The Soul Snacks Cookies Company in 1996 in the Bronx in New York. At this year’s Theatre of Food, he will bake a selection of his much loved and sought after cookies, as well as playing some of Chic’s best known songs and discussing how he manages to combine playing and touring with Chic, with running his highly successful food business.
Soul Snacks Cookie Company offers a variety of delicious cookies, all using recipes that have been in Ralph’s family for over three generations. When not playing with Chic, Ralph can be found in the bakery from 5.30am, working with his team of bakers, all of whom are from the local community, as Ralph’s philosophy is one of giving back to the local community. All his plans for expansion are based on using the power of local workers and reinvesting the profit into their communities. He currently has a bakery in New York, which provides products to retail outlets throughout the USA, as well as offering a worldwide online order service and a hugely successful four storey outlet in Tokyo. Soul Snacks Cookies have been enjoyed by Jennifer Lopez, Bette Middler, Whoopi Goldberg and Prince Albert of Monaco amongst others.
