Cooked: My Journey from the Streets to the Stove | Jeff Henderson
1 post | 1 read | 1 to read
By twenty-one, Jeff Henderson was making up to $35,000 a week cooking and selling crack cocaine. By twenty-four, he had been sentenced to nineteen and a half years in prison on federal drug trafficking charges. It was an all-too-familiar story for a young man raised on the streets of South Central LA. But what happened next wasn't. Once inside prison, Jeff Henderson worked his way up from dishwasher to chief prison cook, and when he was released in 1996, he had found his passion and his dreamhe would become a professional chef. Barely five years out of federal prison, he was on his way to becoming an executive chef, as well as being a sought-after public speaker on human potential and a dedicated mentor to at-risk youth. A window into the streets and the fast-paced kitchens of world-renowned restaurants, Cooked is a very human story with a powerful message of commitment, redemption, and change.

So here's my second attempt at trying to learn to cook, whih is my new years resolution. Tonight's dinner is Garlic Steak and Potatoes with a side of buttered Asparagus. The Huffelpuff journal is slowly filling up with recipies and notes of dishes I want to try, or have tried. Very excited to learn new things and this is definetly out of my comfort zone.
