Celebrity Chef Jake Smollett Talks New Cookbook & Louisiana Influence

Jake Smollett aka “The Home Chef” comes from a family of stardom with siblings like Jussie Smollett who you can catch on Empire or his sister Jurnee who you can catch on Underground. Although Jake has a history in acting as well he finds his true passion to be in the kitchen.
This passion stems from his childhood memories of his mother’s cooking in the kitchen. With a family of six kids his mother’s cooking brought comfort. Much of that comfort came from his mom’s hometown of New Orleans (7th ward to be exact).  So it was only right that Jake sat & chatted with beBATONROUGE as he visited New Orleans for Essence Fest to promote his new family cookbook, “The Family Table”.
Check out the interview & make sure to buy his new cookbook ‘The Family Table!’
