As a young man, Jeff Henderson was arrested for dealing cocaine and spent ten years in Federal Prison. While locked up, Jeff discovered a passion for cooking and once released he used that passion to turn his life around.
Jeff worked his way up to become the Executive Chef at Café Bellagio in Las Vegas. He wrote a best selling book and began mentoring underprivileged kids. In this show, Chef Jeff works with six at-risk youth, instructing them in the kitchen while teaching them personal skills, looking to give them a new shot at life.
If they can stay the course under Chef Jeff’s tough love and guidance, they will receive a scholarship at a top culinary school.
