Chef and TV personality Madison Cowan’s claim to fame came when he became the first-ever Chopped Grand Champion. But this suave-spoken Brit has been cooking since the age of 14, so he knows his stuff. He got his big break working at Tavern on the Green in New York City under the tutelage of Patrick Clark. He’s active in first lady Michelle Obama’s Chefs Move to Schools initiative, and he also runs a private catering and events company, Avenue Inc. Madison currently serves as a judge on Guy’s Grocery Games, and he’s even a competitor on the All-Stars special.
Get to know this Triple G judge, and tune in to watch Madison on Guy’s Grocery Games on Sundays at 8|7c.
Do you prefer shopping in a small market or a supermarket?
Madison Cowan: I fancy small markets/shops. It’s the coziness, intimacy and personal service. Larger shops are cool as well. I prefer Fairway and Trader Joe’s to Whole Foods.
