Guevarra grew up in New Jersey in a large Filipino family, where food was the center of every gathering. His father worked in food hospitality and shared his love for cooking and being adventurous through food with his son. Much of his devotion and interest in cooking started with his dad, but it was Guevarra’s mom who taught him technique and inspired him to use traditional Filipino flavors.
Guevarra’s parents sacrificed a lot to give Robbie a wonderful life with great opportunities like appearing on America’s Test Kitchen: The Next Generation. Winning would mean honoring their support and proving to his dad that cooking can be a fulfilling, sustainable career.
