ABOUT THE CHEF
Hi! My name is Seth Brundle. I’m a Morehouse College alum, private chef, lifestyle content creator and a television personality and host. With more than 15 years of experience, I’ve worked with some of the industry's most prominent networks, entertainers, artists, and publications.To date I’ve worked on a laundry list of digital and television culinary series. Most notably I created, wrote, executive produced, and hosted AspireTV's Butter + Brown (along with the network's mini-series Big Screen Small Bites) and hosted Buzzfeed's Seasoned. I continue to host and develop additional digital and network lifestyle series.
ABOUT THE SZNG
In early 2020, while contending with a worldwide pandemic, I grabbed a $14 cell phone tripod and started conducting live cooking demonstrations as a way to connect with the friends and family that I desperately missed. The overwhelming reception of the demo, along with the joy that came with doing what I loved led to my producing, "Live at 5," a weekly cooking demonstration on Instagram Live.
Quarantine really inspired me to think outside of the box as Live at 5 grew legs and became something bigger. Its success led to opportunities to conduct virtual cooking demos for various companies including, Chicken of the Sea and Hearst Media. As knowledge of my work spread, that snowballed and I was tapped to host the virtual afterparty for Coming 2 America with Amazon Studios and Little Cinema.
As I was trying to think even more outside of the box with what I want to do in the this space, I kept thinking of frequently asked questions like, “Seth, when am I going to be able to taste your food?” Given some of my personal trials of 2021, I couldn't conceive of it, but after much consideration and planning, I decided that there is no better time than the present for The SZNG, my inaugural restaurant style pop-up that took place Labor Day Weekend, September 6, 2021!
The name, The SZNG, is a celebration of Black people’s contribution to American cuisine, popular culture and vernacular with the way it’s stylized and our inclination to formalize pronouns.
I have poured so much time and love into planning and producing these events, which has me both nervous and excited. To ensure that this is a memorable event for family, friends and the community, I've assembled an expert team of chefs to assist in preparing the most deliciously elevated comfort dishes guaranteed to tantalize and expand your palate!
The SZNG returns for Season 2 on Sunday, August 28, 2022 at 1010 Wine and Events in Inglewood, CA! The theme this time around is unapologetic decadence! This 5 course menu features a couple of my signature dishes including my garlic seafood noodles and peach cobbler bread pudding, along with some new recipes I've developed and perfected over the past year. Additionally, each and every course will come with the perfect wine pairing from South African winemaker Kumusha by Tinashe Nyumudoka!
I'm excited to see and feed everyone on the 28th!
