Trap Kitchen: Two chefs from Compton trade gang life for kitchen life

- Malachi Jenkins and Roberto Smith are two chefs from Compton who traded gang life for kitchen life.

One is a former Blood and the other is a former Crip. They turned their back on crime and launched a successful catering business.

Jenkins and Smith have cooked for everyone, including the Kardashians, Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart, Kobe Bryant and Ice Cube.

Both joined us on Good Day LA with ideas on how to transform some of those Thanksgiving leftovers into something new and delicious.

Trap Kitchen is launching a food truck in January. The talented cooks say they will be serving up a different kind of meal every single day with big time flavor and original recipes.
