Jeremy Ford and I have been on board since day one of The Miami Beach EDITION. A couple of things to know about this guy aside from recently winning Top Chef Season 13, and having beat out 30 other competitors for the executive chef position at EDITION’s Matador Room by Jean Georges: He’s an ingredient perfectionist and a leader, not just in the kitchen, but he understands the value of the entire guest experience. Needless to say, he’s an absolute beast in the kitchen. Then there’s the side that I love most: Jeremy’s a total goofball and knows how to make every moment brighter. He loves the ocean and must have been a surf legend in a previous life because he certainly talks like one: “Yeah bra! Keep an eye on this dude and when you see him out send him a drink on me. Tell him, ‘Wagner said…try this bro, it’s nuclear’!”

1. What’s one thing you wish would not have changed in your life since winning Top Chef?

 

Time with my daughter, all the traveling has made it tough.

 

2. What was your most memorable meal?

 

[French chef] Hubert Keller cooked a meal for us on Top Chef and we got to sit with him and Emeril [Lagasse]…unreal.

 

3. If you could cook for one person in the world dead or alive who would it be?

Jimi Hendrix.

 

4. Now that you are traveling more than ever, any bucket list location you can’t wait to get to?

 

India, I love their flavors and culture.

 

5. Where is Jeremy Ford in five years?

 

I would like to be consulting on restaurant projects with EDITION, and creating my own farm in South Florida.

6. On a first date you are taking a lady to do what?

 

On my boat….it always gets ’em.

 

7. One thing you refuse to eat?

 

Rocky Mountain oysters.

 

8. Any more tattoos in your future or are you sticking with one sleeve?

 

It might be time to add the other sleeve, though I’m training in Jiu Jitsu and that makes it hard because if you get tatted you can’t train until it heals.

 

9. What’s your death row meal…and I say death row because we know you’re a badass!

 

Steak and potatoes! And a Mezcal shot with J-Wag.

 

10. If you woke up tomorrow as another chef, who would it be?

 

One that gets to cook more than I do these days!
