“Chef Jeremiah’s first love is food, family and fun. He acquired his love for food at a very young age; watching his parents in the kitchen whipping up various dishes that have since been enhanced by Jeremiah’s own creative blend.” – From Jeremiah’s website www.chefjeremiahjames.com
Hey everybody! Today I interviewed Chef Jeremiah James. He has his own cookbook coming out, plans to own his own restaurant, and he has been on WBALTV 11.
Wait… Did I tell you he’s only fourteen years old? Well he is no joke. Jeremiah is an ExCEL Youth Ambassador (with Gabrielle Jordan) but he’s known to excel in the kitchen. He has always had a thing for cooking, because if you didn’t,why else would you start at five years old. At that age I was probably watching Dora or Blues Clues so that’s pretty impressive. But just starting high school it can get a little challenging. Anyways let’s go ahead and get to my interview.
ALLIE- Can you tell us a little bit about your brand?
JEREMIAH- Well my name is Jeremiah James and I am a cook. I’m fourteen years old and have my own website for my brand which
is Chef Jeremiah James.
ALLIE- How long have you been doing this?
JEREMIAH- I have been cooking since I was five years old but I started my business about two years ago.
ALLIE- Where are you located?
JEREMIAH- I am located in Baltimore, Maryland.
ALLIE- What inspired you to do this?
JEREMIAH- Well as I said I started at age five and started barbequing pork chops and ribs then when I was 8 I started cooking with my mom and dad. After that I started to turn it in to something more.
ALLIE- How does it feel to be a part of the ExCEL Youth Mentoring Institute?
JEREMIAH- It feels great.
ALLIE- Do you have any tips for someone who wants to be in your field?
JEREMIAH- I would tell them to make sure that this is what they want to do and try your best.
ALLIE- Do you have anything coming out or future goals?
JEREMIAH- I have a cookbook in the works and for future goals I would like to have my own restaurant.
ALLIE- Okay so do you have any websites we could go to so we could find out more information?
