"My mom said find something you love to do, and you'll never work a day in your life."
Enjoy a dining experience with Chef Tj Reddick. Chef Tj has been in the food industry since he was 13 years old bussing tables and washing dishes. Chef worked his way through the restaurant industry from then on up. Chef Tj has held every position in the back of the house up to executive chef. His unique ideas, flavor filled foods, and charming personality led him to Food Network where he competed on Cooks Vs. Cons. Chef Tj came home with a win during the Season 3 finale, "Macho Nachos."
Personally, Chef Tj is a father of four. Tj attended culinary school at Kendall College Chicago which was abruptly interrupted for a tour in Iraq. During his time in Iraq, he refused to eat military food, so with an electric flat top and a small grill he cooked food for himself and others in his unit. He eventually completed his Bachelor of Science in Food & Beverage Management from the Art Institute in Atlanta. He enjoys video games, old school music, and a fine bottle of bourbon.
