Cook Like the Pros On the Road with Chef RV

Last Updated on June 25, 2024 by Christina

After exploring some of the best cuisine in southeast Michigan, General RV’s streaming series “Chef RV” has hit the road and traveled south to the Sunshine State. Host Carlos Parisi is traveling in a Thor Sequence 20K Class B camper van in search of the best seafood on both of Florida’s coasts.

For the first stop, Chef RV meets up with Chef Ronicca Whaley, owner and operator of Shiso Crispy with four locations in South Florida. Chef Ronicca comes from a long lineage of female chef entrepreneurs. Classically trained with three culinary degrees, Chef Ronicca finds comfort in cooking on-the-go. Nearly a decade ago, Chef Ronicca moved to Kuala Lumpur, helping the Prime Minister of Malaysia create a 250-food truck franchise. She brought the experience and knowledge she gained back to Florida, creating her own food truck service, Shiso Crispy in early 2020.

Now, with permanent locations in St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Doral and Tampa Bay, Chef Ronicca jumps at the chance to take the flavors of Shiso Crispy back on the road.

Chef Ronicca is used to cooking in the compact space of a food truck and welcomed the challenge of preparing a meal in the kitchen of a Class B RV. After exploring the versatility and resourcefulness of the Thor Sequence 20K Class B motorhome, Chef Ronicca got to work on one of her favorite seafood recipes, Ahi Tuna with Dirty Rice and Cabbage Slaw.

Utilizing the spacious countertop, including having the cover over the single-bowl sink, Chef Ronicca slices the perfect tuna steaks with plenty of room for an array of spices. The large refrigerator even provides enough cold storage space to hold her industrial-sized containers and bowls.

Prepare gourmet meals anywhere you roam

Cooking in the Thor Sequence was very similar to what Chef Ronicca experiences in her food truck. She was impressed with the amount of storage space in the Thor Sequence. Also, she says the quality of the two-burner, gas cooktop outshines some of her cooking equipment at home.

Built on the Ram ProMaster chassis, the Thor Sequence’s 3.6-liter gasoline V6 engine has the power to get you anywhere you want to go. Its off-grid capability is where the Thor Sequence truly shines. Equipped with a high-capacity lithium battery and solar system that can be charged by running the engine, the Thor Sequence can keep you unplugged and on the road for longer. Furthermore, the Thor Sequence can even double as a second family vehicle with four belted seats, giving you the luxury of having household amenities wherever you go.
