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.

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!
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.

Ricky has the honor of being the youngest North American to received a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu It’s time for Bellator season nine lightweight tournament and that means we had to bring back Saad Awad. Saad was on a tear last year before a very controversial stoppage resulted in Saad losing the season 8 final to David Rickels.

Kicking off the second hour is a man who earned his spot on The Ultimate Fighter 18 in the first episode and he did it in fashion. What else would you expect from “The Real Deal?” Chris Beal is back this week to talk the third episode of this season and it’s a very important episode as Chris is set to fight. Our last guest has no problem calling himself “a little guy from a little island,” but just remember big things come in little packages. Joe Taimanglo is coming off an impressive win at Bellator 99 against Andrew Fisher where he secured a win in the opening round of the Bellator featherweight-tournament. The win pushed Joe’s current win streak to 10 and one step closer to winning this years tournament and collecting that 100,000 dollar check.
