 Jonathan David “JD” Eubanks is a former Naval Culinary Specialist and Metal-Band front man, Executive Chef and Louisiana Culinary Ambassador. Born and raised just outside of New Orleans in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, Chef JD learned butchering techniques from his farm-owner grandfather and participated in preparing food for the whole neighborhood, instilling the love of food at a young age. In high school, JD discovered his love of music and went on to become the front man for two metal bands before joining the Navy. He served as a culinary specialist under admirals, captains and other high ranking military personnel. Following his military service, JD continued to develop his culinary career by working for Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Innovative Dining Group, and Fox Restaurant Concepts. He has also competed and won in “Guy’s Grocery Games” on the Food Network, competing against other military veteran chefs and donating his winnings to charity.
