Hell's Kitchen Contestant Robyn Almodovar Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Mass-Produce Her Goods
You may have met Robyn Almovodar on the streets of Miami, serving food from her food truck dubbed The Palate Party Fresh Mobile Cafe, where she serves up her famous soft-shell crab sandwiches, or meatball sliders smothered in a secret Sunday gravy.
Or perhaps you've seen her taking the heat during the 10th season of Fox's Hell's Kitchen, where she competed with her signature dish of seared striped sea bass.
Now, the Hollywood, Florida resident is starting up a new project -- one that will bring her cooking straight to your kitchen -- with an idea known as Incredible Creations that she launched on Kickstarter earlier this month.

Growing up with an Italian family in Brooklyn, New York, Almodovar said she began cooking when she wasn't even old enough to reach the counter. There are memories of standing on a stool to roll meatballs with her grandmother.
"As I got older, it also became a chore. It was my job to feed everyone when I got home from school," said Almodovar. "But I loved it."
Today, Almodovar's cooking can be sampled right here in South Florida from her food truck, which serves a number of creative, fusion-style dishes that cover a variety of cuisine. Everything she prepares is "like a party in your mouth," she says -- which is also the slogan for the line of pre-made sauce, condiments and food that make up Incredible Creations.
Right now, Almodovar has three products in pre-production, including her mushroom risotto balls, fiery fairy hot sauce, and a tomato jam.
