Chef Jay Ducote
Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
Introducing Chef Jay Ducote straight from the Bayou state! Food and beverage writer, blogger, radio host, speaker, video producer, culinary personality chef and hugger. Love that.
Jay finished runner-up on Season 11 of the hit reality competition show Food Network Star, and has had a pilot for his show Deep Fried America air on the Travel Channel. He has been named one of the top 100 amateur chefs in America by FOX’s MasterChef, has appeared as himself on HBO’s drama series Treme, and has been featured on multiple programs such as Cutthroat Kitchen, The Kitchen and Burgers, Brew & Que on Food Network, Eat St. on Cooking Channel, and Last Call Food Brawl on Destination America. The Bite and Booze Radio Show, produced and hosted by Ducote since 2011, won a 2014 Taste Award for best food or drink radio broadcast in the country and the Uniquely Louisiana Award from the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters in 2015.
Jay resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he will launch his first restaurant concept, Gov't Taco, later this summer. Jay wanted to share his view of Louisiana cuisine and to celebrate the culinary culture of his community.
His CrateChef crate will begin shipping Aug 4th and is chock full of delicious products from his kitchen along with his favorites from local producers. Truly authentic Louisiana in every bite. Ça c'est bon!
