A former Chattanooga chef has released his own memoir-cookbook. Jericho Michel is the author of Traveling with Jericho.

Warren Publishing said, "With the global pandemic continuing to hinder both foreign and domestic travel, Traveling with Jericho offers a culinary passport that enables readers to travel through the dishes of various U.S. cities.

"Part cookbook, part journal, Michel’s book is perfect for anyone with a love for culinary masterpieces and tales of not-so-far-away places."

Chef Michel said, “When I travel to new places, it's the most incredible feeling to discover what people eat, how they cook, and the ingredients they use. Food is always connected to a city’s culture and way of life, no matter where you live or travel.”

As soon as he received his driver’s license, Chef Michel began a culinary career that would take him far away from his native Philadelphia as he journeyed all over the eastern United States. Having worked in kitchens from Asheville and Key West to Chattanooga and Chicago, Chef Michel has gathered a lifetime’s supply of deliciously diverse recipes, each with a story explaining how the dish came to fruition, it was stated.

The book "is chock-full of wit, pizzazz, and the Philly flare that seasons not only his work at the cutting block but at his writer’s keyboard as well."

He now has nearly 25 years of experience working in kitchens with Food Network stars, as well as for Oprah’s Harpo Team, and even President Barack Obama. 

Chef Michel worked at Terminal Brewhouse for about three years. He moved back for a short stint again and helped open Beast and Barrel with the same restaurant group El Guapos. That spot closed during the pandemic. They still have three operating spots. The Terminal, Honest Pint, and Hair of the Dog (three of the four  restaurants are mentioned and praised in the book.)

He is still in contact with the guys in the group and has plans to head that way to do a pop up book signing event once Covid allows.   

Traveling with Jericho can be ordered on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, warrenpublishing.net, or in bookstores.
