The Pulse of Entertainment: Harlem’s Celebrity Chef JJ Premiers Reality Show on New TV One Network

*“You will learn how to cook watching the show,” said Celebrity Chef JJ Johnson to me, a non-cooker, about his new reality show ‘Just Eats with Chef JJ” airing Saturdays at 12 noon on TV One’s new lifestyle network CLEO TV (Comcast Xfinity). “My Chicken Parmesan was unexpected. I cooked it as a kid. Each show (dish) is different. I even had to adjust to someone’s allergies.”

Chef JJ, a graduate of Culinary Institute of America, clients have included Jennifer Hudson, Quest Love, Maria Carey, Steph and Ayesha Curry. He is a partner at The Henry by JJ located in the LIFE Hotel (19 West 31st Street) in New York, NY.

“I get up at 7:30am…take a call. Roll out the house 10:30am. Take 1 or 2 meetings then I’m in the kitchen at Henry’s. I end the night in the kitchen recapping with the team. Then home to spend time with my wife,” he said about his daily routine.

Viewers of “Just Eats with Chef JJ” will travel with Chef JJ and see all the surprises, situations and issues that come up for the celebrity chef. The reality show premiered January 19, 2019, same day the CLEO TV network launched, on Comcast Xfinity.
