About the Host

Adam Lamb Profile Photo

Adam Lamb

Producer & Host

I'm your host, Adam Lamb, and over my 30-year career as a chef and hospitality professional, I have had some amazing and fulfilling experiences.

I have also made some monumental mistakes. Even at the height of my culinary success, I couldn't figure out why I was so unhappy and pissed off at almost everyone, almost all the time.

Somewhere along my journey, I forgot why I became a culinarian.

But if my mess is my message, then know that - no matter where you find yourself right now - you too can become the best version of yourself, regardless of the story you tell yourself.

I am committed to assisting you to remember why you fell in love with this craft and fraternity in the first place, just like I did.

You'll learn some valuable insights and perspectives that will support your self-awareness, self-mastery, and, believe it or not, your own self-love and self-respect.

In 'The New Kitchen Culture', you have a part to play. We can't do it without you.

Oui Chef?
