Among the creative pioneers of our time arises Ed Porter, popularly known as Celebrity Chef Porter. Born in Mount Vernon, NY, and raised in The Bronx, Chef Porter has built his name from the ground up, pairing his love for music with his culinary passion to create a unique blend of experience.

Having gained recognition through appearances on Food Network and the Top Ten Netflix hit series ‘Pressure Cooker,’ Chef Porter is now ready to season his career into an exciting new dimension with a unique music-meets-food project. The venture, known as ‘The de zéro Experience‘, promises a multi-sensory rendezvous, marrying the audible attrition of hip-hop with a gastronomic adventure.

For first-time listeners, Chef Porter’s music harks back to the golden era of hip-hop while maintaining a personal touch in matters of content. His latest album, aptly titled ‘de zéro’—a nod to creating from scratch, starts off with a heartfelt monologue by his mother, setting up an intimately autobiographical space. The sixteen-track experience, available across Spotify, Apple Music, and other popular streaming platforms, strikes a unique balance between classic hip-hop undertones, personal storytelling, and cultural/culinary nuances.

The album is a complete standout with impressive lyricism, songwriting, and high production values, making it an experience on par with top hip-hop or Billboard artists—in our opinion. Behind the scenes lies an evident love for both hip-hop and cooking that shines through every idea, note, lyric and ingredient.

The album draws listeners in, not just with its nostalgic sound but its raw and personal story-telling. Tracks such as “Perfect Pictures”, “Solely Matrimony”, and “Thank You” display an openness and vulnerability rarely seen in the music industry, adding a level of authenticity to the immersive experience.

The opening and closing tracks of the album are particularly noteworthy. ‘Mise en place’ effectively sets the tone (hence the distinct song title), establishing a sense of complete openness right from the start. Conversely, ‘Thank You’ rounds out the album with an emotional dedication that brings everything to a heartfelt closure.

On the culinary front, Chef Porter, a graduate of the distinguished Culinary Institute of America, has carved a niche with his premium hospitality and aesthetic plating skills. Working with acclaimed establishments like Aquavit and Cafe Beulah & Sweet Ophelia’s has helped cement Porter’s reputation in the culinary world. His clear passion for what he does, and his dedication to offering unforgettable experiences has led to a distinctive style that transcends simply satisfying taste buds.

Beyond the album itself, and more notable regarding innovation and nothing we’ve seen before, The ‘de zéro Experience’ represents the triumphant intersection of these two passions. Every song in the album will correspond with a carefully curated course, bringing together the audible and the edible to form an immersive sensory experience. A tour to showcase this unique experience will hit many cities, with upcoming details shared here.

Driven by music since the age of eleven, Chef Porter aims to deliver more than just music and food—he wants to provide a sensory experience like no other. Fans can look forward to the release of ‘de zéro’ on vinyl soon, available at select record stores.

Whether curating luxury dining experiences or crafting music with authentic and hard-hitting lyricism, Chef Porter continues to deliver multi-faceted expressions of his creativity. His innovative approach promises to redefine the sensory landscape, fusing melody with mouthwatering cuisine—serving up a feast for both ears and the palate.
