Ed Brantley is a laid-back Southern chef. He is sincere and an extremely hard worker while running his own “one-man-show” catering business. With specialties like his irresistible mac’n'cheese, and shrimp and grits, how could he resist not tasting his dishes all day long? Ed was raised in a home where food was the center of everything. He began to really put on weight in his early teen years due to a combination of laziness and junk food. With his wife, Heba, Ed keeps a very busy social calendar where wine, food and friends make it hard to stay healthy. An all-around good soul, Ed wants to change his life in hopes of having a family someday. He is ready to turn his life around for good!
