Danny Boome Bio

Dynamic young chef Danny Boome brings his passion for food and culinary exploration to America with fresh perspectives and unique quick-fix ideas. In his series, Rescue Chef, everyday cooks experiencing personal culinary obstacles welcome Danny into their homes to save the day. This energetic chef offers viewers creative culinary solutions and a true understanding of the basics necessary to guarantee continued success in the kitchen. From semi-professional hockey to au pair, Rescue Chef has explored many trades but always had a passion for cooking.

Danny started his culinary training in 1999 as a cook in Switzerland doubling up as an au pair for a local family. He later moved to Canada and trained at the acclaimed West Wind Inn. To finalize his training, Danny attended the Grange Cookery School in England. His first post as a young chef was at the fashionable Asia de Cuba restaurant in St. Martins Lane London Hotel, which ignited his passion for fusion cookery.

With years of training and experience under his belt, Danny then packed his bags to travel throughout mainland Europe and North America. While exploring his culinary passions and curiosity for the origins of food and drink, Danny's desire to inspire (not intimidate) everyday cooks was born. He wanted to share his practical, no-fuss recipes and techniques with everyday cooks around the world.

Danny launched his television career in 2004 on UKTV Food's co-production Wild and Fresh where he travelled across Canada seeking out the best home-grown delights each province had to offer. He would then return his host's hospitality by taking inspiration from traditional dishes and cooking up a delicious meal with a contemporary twist!

In 2005, Danny explored his childhood holiday destination at the North Norfolk coastline in the UKTV Food and Anglia Television production of Norfolk's Coastal Kitchen/Danny by the Sea. This show followed Danny as he retraced his steps around this memorable location where his passion for food and fresh produce began. With the success of Norfolk's Coastal Kitchen,Danny launched a series in January 2006 called Coastal Kitchen, continuing his quest to uncover fresh ingredients and unique recipes, which still runs on Anglia Television and Discovery Channel. In 2006 and 2007, Danny was a regional host and judge on UKTV Food's program Local Food Heroes which spotlighted local purveyors from across England.

Danny further increased his profile with a regular spot on Summer This Morning on ITV and has also gained credits on Children's BBC, UKTV Sport and UKTV Good Food Live. Additionally he has appeared at the Autumn Ideal Home Show and has been featured in high-profile advertisements.

An advocate for educating children, parents, and teachers on healthy eating, Danny promotes the importance of understanding the production chain that delivers to the kitchen table. He runs a cooking school featuring courses for novice cooks as well as experienced chefs.

Richard Blais Bio

Most recognizable as the winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars, Richard Blais has played an influential role in hospitality for the last 15 years. He began his career, as so many young aspiring chefs do, as the "poissonnier" at McDonald's. It was here that he first dabbled in deconstruction in cuisine, serving Filet-O-Fish sandwiches sans top bun. His developing passion for food and the service industry led Richard to The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. As an ambitious student, he spent time between semesters studying at the French Laundry in Yountville, Calif., under renowned Chef Thomas Keller and alongside then-rising stars Grant Achatz and Eric Ziebold. Upon graduating from the CIA in 1998, Richard ventured to New York for the opportunity to work with Chef Daniel Boulud at his famous flagship, Restaurant Daniel. Richard then followed his professional compass to Roses, Spain, where he completed a brief stage at El Bulli with culinary wizard Ferran Adrià. In 2000 Richard relocated to Atlanta to oversee a local seafood concept. His wildly creative approach to cooking and cuisine led to the establishment of Trail Blais, a forward-thinking culinary company that has consulted on, designed and operated some of Atlanta's most-popular eateries, including multiple outposts of Flip Burger Boutique and HD-1. He recently launched The Spence, a restaurant concept in midtown Atlanta, and opened Juniper & Ivy, in San Diego, where he offers a refined approach to American cuisine and showcases the seasonal and local ingredients of California. In Richard's debut cookbook, Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate, he reveals a simplified approach to adventurous cooking by sharing new flavor combinations and textures to reinvent home cooks' classic dishes. Each of the 125 recipes is straightforward enough to make at home, but for those who want to try using liquid nitrogen or a sous-vide machine, Richard offers fun variations on his recipes that add another level of excitement in the kitchen. Try This at Home was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award in 2014 in the Cookbook: General Cooking category. In December 2013 Richard appeared as the host of a brand-new television program entitled Cook Your Ass Off. The show, which aired on the HLN network, is a transformational culinary contest that focuses on the health struggles of everyday people. Talented chef contestants are pitted against each other in a three-round competition to transform daily indulgences into healthy and delicious meals. Richard has also appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Live! with Kelly and Michael, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as in numerous publications, including The New York Times, InStyle and Food & Wine magazine.
