Jeffrey Saad started his career at the age of 13, working in a diner behind his junior high school. He was amazed at how raw ingredients became delicious entrees, and having the "hospitality gene," he never looked back, earning the chef de cuisine title in his sophomore year at Iowa State, where he was enrolled in the Hotel Restaurant Mangement program. Enamored of food, he continued his training at the Culinary Institute of America and California Culinary Academy with a master plan to open his own place upon graduation. In 1993, he traveled to Mexico, cooking his way across the country for inspiration, and opening the Mexican-influenced "Sweet Heat" in San Francisco's Marina District, which was a runaway success leading to two mor restaurants and his own signature line of bottled chutneys. As a partner in Pasta Pomodoro Italian restaurants, Jeffrey helped to open the first 12 locations of the California-based chain before moving to Los Angeles. While running a real estate company with his wife, Nadia, he continued to explore international flavors in his downtime, with dishes from China, France, Spain, Italy, and Nadia's native Iran. A fortuitous suggestion from a friend led him to audition for the Next Food Network Star on Food Network , and he was ended the season as first runner up. The network saw potential, giving him a web series, "Spice Smuggler," then on Cooking Channel cable, "United Tastes of America," for four seasons. The busy Jeffrey hosts a new online service called MGO, "Dinner and a Download," pairing meals with movies, and will be on a PBS episode called "A Moveable Feast" with Pete Evans in September, plus other ventures.

From the age of 13, Jeffrey Saad knew food was his calling. Working at the local diner behind his junior high school, he was hooked: "I flipped my first burger and in that moment I knew that food was going to be my life. I was completely inspired watching food transform into irresistible eating experiences."
After studying hotel and restaurant management at Iowa State, Jeffrey continued his studies at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., and the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. A man on a mission, he dedicated late nights to learning the ins and outs of the food business, quickly gaining experience working in the kitchens of several restaurants and bakeries. While interning with Anton Mosimann in London, Jeffrey spent early mornings working with the pastry chef, learning how to prepare fine desserts and breads.
Ready to begin a business of his own, Jeffrey returned to California to open "Sweet Heat." Serving fresh and healthy Mexican-inspired fare, the restaurant was a hit. Jeffrey opened two others before moving on to become partner in charge of operations at "Pasta Pomodoro Italian Restaurants," working to open the first dozen of the 40-plus restaurants in the chain. In 2009, Jeffrey burst onto the national food scene after finishing as runner up in Season 5 of "The Next Food Network Star." Following his success on the show, he hosted "The Spice Smuggler" for FoodNetwork.com.
Jeffrey’s cooking borrows inspiration from his passion for fresh food and exotic spices, giving way to unconventional twists on classic dishes, like his seared scallop tacos with green chili chutney. But make no mistake, he will always remain loyal to traditional American fare, such as burgers, meatballs and his favorite, pizza.
Today's Topic is "Cooking" I will discuss with my guest today "Cooking Techniques" "Spices" and "Grove Restaurants" which is my guest's group of Restaurants. We will also discuss his "Recipe Book" and "Recipes". I will cook and stir up a great recipe for an awesome conversation and show with my special guest Celebrity Chef Jeffrey Saad. Jeffrey Saad is a rising star ready to ignite the globe with his inspirational cuisine. Host of the hit Cooking Channel series United Tastes of America, Jeffrey is a skilled chef who has created and contributed to many successful restaurants, including San Francisco’s Sweet Heat, Pasta Pomodoro and his current group of restaurants, The Grove. His insatiable appetite for ingredients and flavors and encyclopedic knowledge of spices allows him to create “food without borders.” Teaching home cooks to cook locally and eat globally is his passion, and his first cookbook Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders (Ballantine, March 2012) takes the reader on a culinary trip around the world—no passport required!

Jeffrey's passion for food is matched by his passion for wine. With 20+ years experience with wines, he has completed the intermediate level at the highly-regarded WSET.

It might only be the beginning of the seventh week of the MLB season, but we’ve already seen our second managerial change and that prompts a full scale conversation among our Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters, Frat House Mike and the “Frat Boys” Sean and Caleb about managers, their significance, and Hall-of-Famers in the making.
All of this has been provoked by Miami Marlins’ owner Jeffrey Loria removing Mike Redmond in favor of the team’s GM Dan Jennings who comes from a long-line of star high-school players he managed 30 years ago!
We’ve seen some really good pitching so far this season, but not a “no-no.” Frat House Mike predicts there will not be too many this year. He provides a very compelling reason. Of course there could be fewer no-hitters in the future if Commissioner Rob Manfred gets his way and shortens the season.
We’re still talking Bryce Harper and Pete Rose as an analyst . . . and, is Montreal getting baseball back?
This show’s so good, you’ll just “hate” it . . . if you don’t call-in and weigh-in that is . . . at 347 – 826 – 9964 along with the “Clean-Up Hitters” of the Frat House Sports Radio Network.
In the "Sympathy for the Marlins?" edition, Steve, Aaron, and Jeffrey take on the chaos in Miami, the ontology of Noah Syndergaard's breaking ball, and where the heck the 2015 Mets are going to find some more offense (HELLO HELLO MR ALDERSON ITS CARLOS GOMEZ). Next Toby Hyde of Mets Minor League Blog joins the show to discuss this year's edition of the Savannah Sand Gnats, but we mostly just swap Luis Guillorme doing crazy things at shortstop stories. Finaly we wrap things up with a whole lot of book recommendations and the podcast triumphantly lifts a trophy

In the "Ragnarok >>>>> Thorsday" edition, Steve and Jeffrey just get thrown out there to see if they can podcast. Sio we tapdance a bit on Noah Syndergaard's debut (mostly because Steve was at an ROH show), and discuss what might possibly be the matter with Jacob deGrom. Next, because the show wasn't going to run long enough as it was, we go over your twitter topic suggestions, so get ready for a lot of pro wrestling, and some complaining about Terry Collins. Then, Jeff Moore from Baseball Prospectus joins the show to talk about the Mets prospects of note in St. Lucie (mostly just Robert Gsellman). Finally, we wrap things up with your e-mails and an extended Svenska Cupen final preview. Come on you blue and white angels!
In honor of our Brother Jeffrey Muhammad we will not broadcast today.
Joe is away so Kate is joined by Mike Cross to talk about a joke Mike played on his co-workers that went wrong. It turns out some people don't find serial killer jokes funny. They also talk about Mike's powerful dreams, and when he started to realize that he gets strong premonitions.

We will discuss the recent NBC news from last night and the second in a series of three videos about the WLC. Councilmember Giba was served with intent to recall last night.
