Steve McCann

As the new year approaches, things are looking bright for Philadelphia native chef Kenneth J McDuffie. Chef McDuffie will be the next local chef to compete on FOX’s hit show, Hell’s Kitchen. 

Inspired and encouraged to cook by his deceased grandmother, this self-taught chef has made a name for himself in the celebrity circuit. From cooking in the private homes of the rich and famous, Chef will now be in everyone’s home across the globe. It is very noteworthy to point out that Chef Kenny will be the first openly gay black contestant to appear on Hell’s Kitchen.

“Coming to Hell’s Kitchen, I had a lot to prove … it’s a learning experience. And at the end of the day, I know that great grandmother is smiling down, I really did her proud.”

Chef Kenneth McDuffie
