Mr. Bobo was Dwight's first spirit encounter when he was approximately 5 years old. We truly believe he is one of Dwight's guides and has helped him throughout his life. He would often appear to Dwight throughout the day and before bed to instill values and a life long passion for baking and cooking.
Mr. Bobo was an older African American man with short salt and pepper hair who chose to look after a young boy who needed guidance and direction and thanks to his guidance, Dwight became a master chef.
We have been able to validate who we believe Mr. Bobo was in life as a cook at Boy's Industrial School in Ohio.
We will update this page periodically with recipes from the spirit of Mr. Bobo. Enjoy!
