Sam the Cooking Guy

The host and creator of the TV series Sam the Cooking Guy, with 15 Emmy awards, four cookbooks and a dozen visits to the Today Show, Sam is well known for his “big in taste and small in effort” style. But in 2015 he fled the small screen to create Sam the Cooking Guy on YouTube – and now his 2.5 million (and growing) subscribers are being exposed to his irreverent mix of nonsense, humor but easy-to-replicate recipes.

He lives in San Diego with his 3 restaurants: Not Not Tacos, Graze and Samburgers. OK, he actually lives with his wife, but definitely loves his restaurants too.
