About your host, Derrick Prince: I’ve always had a passion for food and have been an avid home cook for as long as I can remember, but it's safe to say I didn’t start my serious cooking journey until I was a contestant on Season 2 of MasterChef. Although I didn’t win, I was able to use the experience as a spring board that would enable me to change careers and become a professional chef. After the show I was able quit my desk job and start working in a kitchen. Starting as a line cook in Beauty & Essex in NYC, I worked my way up to sous chef at The Stanton Social and then to chef de cuisine at both Vandal and The Stanton Social.

Despite spending so many years in professional kitchens I started at home and know the home kitchen, its tools, and yes sometimes its limitations like few other chefs. I look forward to being able to use the EatWith cooking class platform as a way to share a knowledge that combines professional chef skills with home cooks all over to create delicious and amazing meals.
