Everyone’s favorite Lower East Side-based culinary personality (and Mass Appeal Issue 53 subject), The Hood Chef, is back on the road for his renowned food tour. This time around the food buff is rolling with his 4FUN Astronauts crew as they hit Boston, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Atlanta, Orlando and Miami.
Known for his charismatic and positive ways, Hood Chef’s grassroots approach to cooking and preparing dishes for both fans and the community makes him a more than likable fellow in our book.

Get familiar with a few of his homies-slash-roadies and get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to go on tour, sell t-shirts and search for missing grilling surfaces.
