Special Guests

Adam Glick

Born in Hobbs, New Mexico, Adam was brought up in a variety of locations both in the U. S. and overseas, living and traveling with his sister and parents. It wasn't until his return to California that the culinary bug bit him. Eventually, he would move to Southern California and attend the Art Institute of California, where he received a Bachelor's degree in Culinary Management. While living in San Diego, Adam cooked and served in some of San Diego's finest restaurants. Over a decade later, Adam has been the chef for dozens of private motor and sailing yachts. His years of experience in the industry have kept him busy and his clients happy. In the summer of 2013, Chef Adam Glick filmed the very first episode of Food Network: Cutthroat Kitchen. In 2016, in what seemed to be destiny, Chef Adam set sail for Split, Croatia to film the second season of the Bravo TV hit series Below Deck Mediterranean 2. As a hobby, Chef Adam produces quick tip video recipes for the amateur chef to get inspired and learn.
