When most kids were dreaming of cookies and cake, Courtney Rada was dreaming of riblets and steak. A comedian and food lover, Courtney grew up in the restaurant business. As a native of South Jersey, she has always been a fan of farm-fresh ingredients and bold flavors. Shout out to The Garden State, she says! Genuinely curious about every meat’s story, Courtney loves to make herself at home in everyone’s kitchen.

In April of 2018, Courtney made her TV debut on Food Network’s Ultimate Summer Cook-Off as a guest judge with Chef Eddie Jackson. Since then, Courtney’s been launched into a world of hosting and judging on shows such as Food Network/Cooking Channel’s Beat Bobby Flay, Valerie Bertinelli’s Family Food Showdown, The Best Thing I Ever Ate and more. In 2017, she hosted several shows on Genius Kitchen, a digital subsidiary of Food Network, including a series called Carnivorous.

A trained actor and comedian, Courtney’s screen and standup credits include Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Elite Daily, Bustle, HowCast and Amazon.

When not working, you can find Courtney cooking at home, planning her next getaway, editing an Instagram caption, hitting the gym or reading a book she won’t finish. Courtney loves to share a joke, a bite and a laugh with everyone she “meats.”
