International chef Dennis Prescott is a best-selling cookbook author of Eat Delicious and co-host of the Netflix original series Restaurants on the Edge in which he travels to flailing restaurants and transforms their menus to place them on the road to success. Once a struggling musician in Nashville trying to make ends meet, Prescott unexpectedly stumbled upon a different kind of art—the art of food after checking out a Jamie Oliver cookbook from the library because he couldn’t afford to purchase a copy. With a cooking style that combines international comfort food with influences from his Eastern Canadian surroundings, Chef Dennis is known by his 500,000+ followers for recipes that are attainable, relatable, delicious, and beautiful. @dennistheprescott
