Jeff Henderson tells an inspirational story of triumph over the odds. While growing up in the inner city, he was attracted to the wealth of neighborhood hustlers. Soon he was running drugs himself and making huge sums of money. At 24 he was arrested and spent ten years in prison where, while working as a dishwasher in the prison kitchen, Jeff discovered a passion that ultimately saved him. Drawing on the same tenacity that ensured his succeed on the streets, Jeff relentlessly pursued his goal of becoming a chef, ultimately earning a place in some of the most exclusive kitchens in America.
