Jeff Henderson

Jeff Henderson took a turn for the better when he left a life of crime and dedicated himself to cooking instead. In 2001, he became the first African-American Chef de Cuisine at Caesars Palace and then became the executive chef at the Bellagio.

Even Will Smith was impressed by Henderson’s reformation. The actor bought the rights to his autobiography, Cooked, in the hopes of someday bringing the story to the big screen.
