Chef Eric Adjepong is still in the running for the ultimate prize in Season 16 of Bravo TV’s hit cooking show, ‘Top Chef’
Born and raised in New York City, Chef Eric Adjepong is a first generation Ghanaian-American. He resides in Washington, D.C., where he is a personal chef, a caterer and public health & nutrition professional. He has degrees from Johnson & Wales in Culinary Arts, Culinary Nutrition (BS) and International Public Health Nutrition (MPH).
Eric has cooked in some of NYC’s premiere restaurants including two different Michelin Star rated establishments. Chef Eric’s inspiration comes from various cultures and regions of the world and he sources a lot of his flavors from the foods that he grew up eating. Eric is currently focused on his pop-up series Pinch & Plate that he works on with his wife.
Eric hopes his participation on the show would help put some mainstream spotlight on African cuisine like never before. “TV gives me a soapbox to really yell as loud as I can about African food, and do it in a really impactful way,” he told the Washington Post.
The point, for him, is for Ghanaian food to be the next French, Italian or Japanese.
Eric has also featured in Food Network’s hit show, ‘Chopped’ where they chronicled his Ghanaian background as well. To vote for Eric as Fan Favourite visit BRAVO TV.
