Danny’s role of the resident Chew Crew correspondent, in ABC’s new daytime lifestyle show “The Chew”, will be the roving reporter bringing viewers the latest news from around the country. Covering events and dishing on new and exciting food trends, to coming up with great simple recipes, he’ll have all covered, as he travels across America and the world! In addition Boome will occasionally join the panel in-studio to share his recipes and findings.
In his Food Network series, Rescue Chef, everyday cooks experiencing personal culinary obstacles welcomed Danny Boome into their homes to save the day. As “Rescue Chef” he offered viewers creative solutions and a true understanding of the basics necessary for success in the kitchen. Now, Boome brings his passion for food and culinary exploration to homes, schools and lecture halls across America. He shares his fresh perspective and practical, no-fuss recipes and techniques through cooking workshops, courses and private lessons.
He started his culinary training in 1999 as a cook in Switzerland doubling up as an au pair for a local family. He later trained at the acclaimed West Wind Inn in Canada and attended the Grange Cookery School in England. His first post as a young chef was at the fashionable Asia de Cuba restaurant in St. Martins Lane London Hotel, which ignited his passion for fusion cookery.
Boome launched his television career in 2004 on UKTV Food’s co-production Wild and Fresh, where he travelled across Canada seeking out the best homegrown delights each province had to offer. He returned to England to host Danny By the Sea, Coastal Kitchen and Local Food Heroes and had a regular spot on ITV’s Summer This Morning. In 2008, Boome became the “Rescue Chef” and was international spokesman for Samsung Refrigerators.
Danny’s passion for health, well being and opportunity spurred the creation of his Better FED Than Dead Foundation. The Foundation’s main focus is to feed, education and develop adults and children all over the world. Since 2009, FED has dedicated resources to the research of the obesity problem in America and the growth of food deserts in urban communities. With the help and advice of charter schools in the New York Metro area, Boome is honored to participate in the TEDX Conference in Harlem in October 2011. There he will launch a series of programs, including school curriculum, to better the fitness and health of our next generation of Americans.
