The Foodie Magician - Josh Beckerman

Season 1, Ep. 9

The first time I met Josh he told me he makes food disappear. He then proceeded to eat an entire foot long lamb chop in my restaurant in under one minute right in front of my eyes.

Josh Beckerman AKA the Foodie Magician is a professional entertainer and a consumer of every great restaurant in New York.

He intertwines magic, mentalism and comedy around the world.

This guy is no wall flower, he’s funny, entertaining and makes most rooms fall in love with him within a few minutes. That’s his real magic.

The New York times stated, go out often enough and the food magician will materialize at the edge of your table.

He has done tonnes of TV shows, the today show, late night with Seth Meyers and the of course cooking channel.

For a healthy dose of magic and food updates in real time you really have to follow him on social media.

I get most of my latest food updates from his IG stories.

A true entrepreneur that has squared away a unique career and craft for himself in a true compelling strategy and role that no

one can compete with or probably eat more in in day than him.

He is the Food Magician

Ep 12: Nasser Jabber - Founder The Migrant Kitchen

Season 2, Ep. 12
Today’s guest Nasser (Nas) Jabber (from The Migrant Kitchen amongst other things) is proof that resilience, determination, a strong moral compass and doing good for others can positively change your life. This guy’s story is truly fascinating and incredibly humbling.  From growing up in a tight-knit community and loving household , to finding himself living on the streets of NYC, we hear about his tenacity to keep going, even in times of great adversity.  Two global crises nearly ruined him, this latest one propelled him forward, and what started out as a way of emptying his fridges when he was forced to close his operation in order to help feed frontline workers has now become a full time job, empowering the migrants he employs to produce food from their homelands to feed not only those in need but discerning customers across the city.Originally from Ramallah, Palestine, Nasser Jaber came to the United States to study. Working at restaurants to pay his way, Nas discovered that his true passion was food. His talents would take him from waiting tables to training under some of the best chefs in New York City. Inspired by the diverse stories of America’s immigrant communities, Nas developed his acclaimed project Displaced Kitchens. Passionate about culinary diplomacy, Nas has worked with the U.S. government in Turkey and Sweden to provide real solutions to the refugee crisis through food hospitality and farming.We hope you enjoy this heartfelt exploration of a life that has had many twists and turns but ultimately allowed him to find his true calling/
