    Enjoyed the short bio and demos. Well done, smooth presentation. Question: Did you make it? Are you TNFNS? :=)

    I am preparing the shrimp tostadas tonight. My kitchen smells heavenly already and I haven’t started the shrimp yet. So very sorry that you were not the final winner but I just know that there is something “out there” for you and your lovely family. Please assure us that you will keep contributing to this sight. You are very talented and I know that you will reach your dream!

    You were my pick from the beginning – but I’m confident you’ll still get your own show.

    I’d love to make the sandwich you made with harissa, but don’t see the recipe posted anywhere. Do you think you’ll be making it available?

    Thanks so much!

    Jeffrey, the pick between you and Melissa must have been impossible. You both were my pick. The Mayo and harissa…WOW!! I want to make it. Where will you be posting the recipie? Good luck, and I look forward to seeing more about you in the future. The Food Network MUST use you!!

    Hi Jeffrey,
    I think your recipes are great and I loovee that you use international ingredients. I love green chiles, and I’m dying to try the green chile chutney. Could you pass out the recipe?

    Thanks a lot,

    Yo Jeffrey, I know this is late, but was browsing FN for a recipe and came across a video slide show of your recipes. My wife and I watched the past season TNFNS, I was rooting for you all the way, the wife was rooting for Melissa. You won more challenges, your food appeared super interesting, the cooking techniques and food knowledge you possess is something I personally want to learn. I just watched your Anise seed video, that is what I want, a kick it up ingredient that will make a wow meal and surprise the guests. During the season your delivery was sometimes rough, however every show you progressed and improved. Previous winner Aaron McCargo wasn’t as good as you were during Season 5. “Food Without Borders”, was a much better title than “Spice Smuggler or Ingredient Smuggler”, it is unfortunate that they forced you to make that change (No one can relate to FNs forced title). I think the FN execs are missing a huge market, guys want to cook. When guys cook they are not the nightly cook due to work, but on the weekends and special occasions they want to cook GREAT meals. I am the member of several forums where guys are cooking, and we are pretty serious about it. is an example.

    Good luck to you, I hope FN maybe does a show of runner up challenge, to see if they overlooked a winner, YOU ARE A WINNER, and easily could be the next Guy Fieri, your energy is similar but with a mature sophisticated flair.
    Melissa’s show is hmmm ok,

      Hello Dennis,
      Thanks for taking the time to check out my recipes and the blog. I really appreciate the support and the detailed thoughts. I will try to check out your smokingmeatforum. I am determined to have a show so keep an eye out. I am opening for Guy F next Thursday at Los Angeles’ Universal City Gibson theatre. It is going to be a blast! Take care and keep in touch. Happy Holidays. Tell your wife no hard feelings 🙂 Take care.
