Homemade Broadcast: Tampa Bay’s Jeff Philbin Brings Cullinary Prestige to FOX’s “Master Chef”

Who would have thought that the bubbly, well mannered Jeff Philbin was going toe-to-toe with Chef Gordon Ramsey during one of Ramsay’s famous verbal lashings just a few weeks before stepping in the HMB “Studio”? He’s a fun and unassuming guy but after spending a few minutes with him you can feel the fire that burns with the passion of his craft. He’s not going to back down from anybody; even the fork-tonged, Uber-Chef Brit who is even more famous for his vocal-beatings than his globally recognized cuisine.

Chef Jeff stopped by The Homemade Broadcast joined by Creative Loafing Tampa‘s Food & Drink Editor, Meaghan Habuda to talk about the Tampa Bay culinary scene, his on-going conquest to win MasterChef (Wednesday’s 8/7c on FOX) and how you can join him for watch parties to benefit local, deserving charities. Learn more at Jeff’s official Facebook page or at his website.

Catch The Homemade Broadcast Sunday’s at 6:15PM on RadioStPete.com or iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts, just search for “HMBradio Tampa Bay”.
