On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, the grandson of a preacher man, Chadwick Boyd was raised on Southern fare: fried chicken biscuits, coconut custards, lemon meringue pie … It was in his blood to host, holding his first dinner party at 10 years old, cooking Steak Diane, twice-baked potatoes and peas for mama out of the Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls. Since then, Boyd’s had lobster for New Year’s Eve dinner on the set of Dead Poet’s Society, cooked alongside Dolly Parton, been seen on the big screen in over 15,000 movie screens around country for his series “Reel Food”, and now works as a food & lifestyle brand strategist. That said, he’s still all about those biscuits; hosting an International Biscuit Festival in Knoxville, TN for over 20K attendees, coordinating a traveling “Biscuit Time” event series with chef and television personality Carla Hall, and continues to use food as a medium for storytelling throughout his life.
