"Tom is one of the smartest, funniest and most dedicated people I know. I have seen him single handedly create world class food events out of thin air. I don’t think he understands the concept of 'no, that can’t be done.' He is a great mentor to the Mississippi food community at large and champion of the New South."
- Andrew Zimmern, Host of Travel Chanel’s "Bizarre Foods"
"I used to want to be a chef, now I just want to be Tom. He’s the Chef Ramsey we should be watching."
- Dean Carpentier, Independent Writer & Producer
"Tom's on-stage presence transcended the typical cooking show and became pure entertainment. His storytelling and cooking held the attention of a full theater from his introduction to beyond the end of the show. I'd love to get him back on- board."
