Eat It and Like It, All You Can Eat and MORE

Some people see our show as a guide to local restaurants in Savannah. Others see it as a must have foodie resource. Some use it for recipes. What we are actually (in our view) is simple. Something different than you see on all the cooking/travel shows out there.

We are about the South.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Southern Cuisine. Most of the world knows us for being all about the fried chicken and collard greens. Sometimes a chef takes that old classic and gives it a modern twist. But what's next? There is great food out there. Talented chefs doing great things and quiet wonderful small town people turning heads as well. The common denominator is food and we are planning to find them all. Then share them with you. One bite at a time.

ABOUT JESSE:

How many of you remember the days when we had three or four TV channels and you actually had to get up from your seat to change them? Show of hands please…

It was back in that day that I developed a curiosity about television news. 6:00pm would come around and my mom would say "get out of my chair and change the channel." There was no other TV set, so I watched the news. A lot. And so a career was born.

Since those days, I have enjoyed a 19 year career as television news anchor. In that time I have reported on major stories like hurricanes, Super Bowls, Shuttle launches and a Presidential Inauguration. I have lived in places like Orlando, Fort Myers, Savannah, Nashville and even El Paso, Texas. More importantly, though, spending time in a variety of places has allowed me to experience and understand different people and different cultures.

That would obviously include food… both cooking and eating. It helped that I was raised in Miami along with a very, very large Cuban-American family where the genetic make up consists of food, drink, music, dancing, laughing, family, and friends. Toss in an insatiable desire to travel and explore and you get someone who is only happy being curious or learning and trying new things.

During the week, besides catching me on the nightly news, I participate in countless fundraisers and community events that take place in and around Savannah.

On the weekend you'll likely find me either tinkering with a new recipe or exploring something or somewhere with my family. During football season, you'll find me parked in front of a TV-glass of red wine in hand-cheering on my Miami Dolphins or Hurricanes.

The Historic District of Savannah, Georgia is where I call home with my wife, Sheila, and our daughter.
