Three, nine-minute episodes launch every Monday through July 3.
A native of Miami and former chef to Rick Ross, Chef Jeremiah is one of Florida’s most innovative purveyors of haute cuisine. He didn’t get there by following the rules, He’s been kicked out of more five-star kitchens than he can count, and he started a gourmet food truck way before it was trendy. This chef marches to the beat of his own drum.
“I am so f*%$ing stoked to share my epic culinary travels with you guys. We’re puttin’ these dope food spots on the map — you know how we do. Each city and culture set it off with inspiration. I put my own spin on tasty local cuisines with the help of all the homies I met along the way. This show is the real deal flavor of America,” said Jeremiah Bullfrog.
One week he’s in New Orleans cooking up a creole spread for bounce superstar Big Freedia, and next, he’s making soul food for rap artists in Atlanta. Whether he’s serving up a Mexican/Chinese mash-up menu for hip hop dancers in Oakland, or a five-course dinner to improv comics in Chicago, Jeremiah Bullfrog brings the party; devouring delicious food and drink with reckless abandon, making locals blush with his irreverent sense of humor, and doing everything he can to make sure this is not your momma’s cooking show. He also takes viewers to the hidden dining spots that only the natives know about, finds hand picks ingredients from insider sources, and lets us into his kitchen where he reveals his culinary secrets.
In the first episode of the series, Chef Jeremiah visits the land of beer and cheese, Wisconsin! He’s there to cook up an epic tailgate feast for a big football game between the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Along the way, Chef Jeremiah stops by the Underground Butcher in Madison to taste their amazing smoked meats and make some bratwurst from scratch, and then he hits up Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee to pick up some famous Wisconsin cheddar for the big event. When game day arrives, Chef Jeremiah’s tailgate does not disappoint with delectable Braunschweiger grilled cheese sandwiches, brats in cheese sauce and bomb-ass potato salad.
