On Friday, December 16, Netflix will release a fresh new culinary program called Cook at All Costs. The program will feature three home chefs competing for vital ingredients and attempting to create the best meals in order to wow guest judges and presenter Jordan Andino. 49-year-old Andino most recently hosted Food Network’s Late Nite Eats in 2018. He was also named one of Zagat’s “30 Hottest Chefs Under 30” in 2016. He often serves as a guest judge on Canada’s Jr Chef Showdown and will now “bid off” culinary items in Cook at All Costs.
Jordan Andino is the proprietor of the Flip Sigi restaurant business.
Jordan Andino, who was born in Toronto, Canada, started cooking at the age of nine, learning various recipes from his father. He immediately relocated to Manhattan Beach in order to work in some of the most renowned restaurants, including Spago and The French Laundry. Andino studied in Cornell University’s Hotel Administration department in 2006 and graduated in 2010. He often worked as a personal chef at the time and has been featured on Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, a spin-off series of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Jordan worked as a chef, bartender, and manager at a variety of restaurants after graduation, including Dino’s Bar and Grill, Cavanaugh’s River, and Disco Sushi Entertainment.
Jordan launched his Flip Sigi restaurant business in 2016, serving meals that combine authentic Filipino cuisine with French expertise. According to the website of Andino:
“Jordan’s food is a creative collaboration between his grandma and father. He’s built a distinct distinctive profile for his Flip Sigi Restaurants by combining those ingredients with Spanish and Mexican vessels.”
Jordan made his debut appearance as a guest chef on the Food Network and the Cooking Channel in 2017. His stint on the program provided him with the chance to launch his own Food Network show, Late Nite Eats, which lasted two seasons and 26 episodes. During that time, he served as a guest judge on Cooks vs. Cons, Chopped, and Worst Cooks in America. He is presently employed as a personal chef with Fork Knife Hospitality, where he has cooked meals for over 10,000 customers, including professional sportsmen and celebrities.
