He had much success with his first reality show, THE CHEF JEFF PROJECT on The Food Network, and he is looking forward to co-starring in is second reality show.
“I’m excited to be back in the kitchen. I’ve been given the chance to showcase my culinary skills on a new level and taking on a challenge that puts me to the test,” said Henderson, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Cooked.
BEAT THE CHEFS will feature Chef Jeff and two other top chefs competing in a cooking show against amateur cooks who believe their family recipes are worthy of the winning prize of $25,000.
Chef Jeff has several projects and his fourth book release in his plans for spring 2013. With his passion to help troubled youth, Henderson remains active in the community through his nonprofit organization, The Chef Jeff Foundation. Henderson’s latest literary project is a self-help book that focuses on two decades of his life, from drug dealer to TV celebrity chef and nationally acclaimed motivational speaker. His main objective is “to help readers discover their hidden business aptitudes, make life changing decisions and secure bulletproof success.”
Chef Jeff’s first book, Cooked has inspired Sony Pictures to tell his story on the big screen and is set to star Will Smith in the leading role. He also has plans to open a southern themed restaurant that will be in partnership with a Downtown Las Vegas casino. For more information, visit www.chefjefflive.com.
