Kitchen Expert Travis Hill
  • Travis Hill

    Hey, Y鈥檃ll! My name is Travis, I am from Texas, and I specialize in modern Southern cooking with French technique, which I do for indoor and outdoor kitchens! I am so happy to have the opportunity to help elevate your kitchen with all tools and toys that really make it fun to cook.

    After ten years in the army, I took all I had and opened a small restaurant and food truck in Texas. After that first day, we were open; that is all I wanted to do with the rest of my life; cook!

    Fast forward to today, with culinary school and eight years working as a professional chef in Pro service and R/D Kitchens under my belt, I get to travel and teach cooking. I help cooks, chefs, and pitmasters hone their craft with tips, tricks, and gadgets that are now and will be mainstays. I split my time between kitchen and outdoor cooking and testing every type of cookware and cutlery piece out there.

    I have done everything from teaching the proper dissemination of smoke in an offset smoker and pellet grill to the best blender to emulsify a from-scratch hollandaise and keep it without breaking.

    I would love the opportunity to help put together some excellent kitchen gear to elevate your dishes. It鈥檚 all in the details!

    So send me a message, and let鈥檚 get started!

    Travis Was Great
    I was not familiar with Curated. Never heard of it. But while googling skillets and different materials they are made of, Travis popped out somehow and offered his expertise. I had several windows open, including Amazon, and was going back and forth between them. This service is legit! Travis was great. He actually saved me money and got me exactly what I was looking for, so he earned a nice tip.

Travis had all the right information and a video specific to me and everything I was looking for in a matter of minutes. Very impressive. I will never go anywhere else now. I'm here for like Travis has made a new friend.

    A true expert!
    I came across Curated by accident while searching online for knife sets. I got paired up with Travis and he was so helpful! Within minutes he had a list of suggestions for me that fit my needs, and when I told him that I was looking for something a little less expensive he was able to quickly adjust his suggestions for me. He even helped me out with a price match when I found a cheaper price elsewhere, huge thanks to Travis for your great recommendations!

    Travis is AMAZING!!
    Travis was incredibly helpful!! I feel like he really listened to me, to find out exactly what I was needing, & he truly exceeded those expectations; he literally gave me the best deal for high-quality, culinary cutlery. I can honestly say that I would not have made my purchase, had it not been his patience & expertise!! Much appreciated!!

    The best customer experience ever
    I had such a great experience with Travis. I took multiple days mulling over which products to purchase and he was so patient, enthusiastic, friendly, and extremely responsive throughout. He was conscientious of my needs and walked me through each product I had questions about. He price matched the company鈥檚 sale too. Curated鈥檚 platform is amazing as well.

    Travis did an excellent job explaining the ins and outs of various products. He balanced his personal experiences with what we were asking for in our purchase. I didn't plan on making a purchase when I got on this site, but his personal knowledge and experience swayed us! He has a God-given talent for his craft as well as conversing with clients!

    Awesome experience
    I found Curated on a whim, thinking it'd be one of those websites with a pay wall or scam. I was pleasantly surprised that it isn't! I was able to chat with a chef (Hey, Travis!) and get custom recommendations easily. Travis advised me throughout the entire process and answered questions that came up. He was kind, considerate, and communicative. I also never felt pressured to purchase a particular product. I will use this website again if I need recommendations for kitchen goods!

    Travis was very helpful!
    I contacted him not really knowing what I wanted. He suggested some options, and then I took a day to think over it, the next day I asked him a few more questions, and he immediately responded and within a few minutes I had already pretty much been able to make up my mind, and what I wanted. He was also very friendly and always ready to help!
