In case you didn’t know I thought I’d tell you. Right now I’m working on my second Bachelor’s Degree in Multi-Media Journalism so usually I kill two birds with one stone by doing what I love to do, which is writing and cooking and bringing them together to write about food, culinary arts, cooking and so forth.
So, last week I had the best opportunity ever. I actually got an interview with Baron Ambrosia, host of BronxNet’s show Bronx Flavor. He has been interviewed before by New York Times and Esquire to name a few. He actually took the time out to talk to me and discuss that show as well as his new show that will be airing on the cooking channel called The Culinary Adventures of Baron Ambrosia which is set to air sometime in the middle of this year.
In case you’re somewhat like me and you sit at home eating mint chocolate chip ice cream and watching the Food Network, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I say his show is a cross between Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and Good Eats.
let me tell you he’s the same person in person as on his show which was great!
I decided to post up the interview I had with him and in case you haven’t seen his show, the fun prop filled show airs on BronxNet or can be seen on his website and stay tuned to the cooking channel because it will be airing soon!
