BIG BOI’S GOTTA EAT
Each week Big Boi sets out in search of the best damn seafood anywhere! but first he’s got to find out about how it all happens. And how hard the job really is. He’s gotta find out why the cod he’s air frying is better here than there. Why gulf shrimp is the most sought after in the south. And it all finishes with a friend, a chef, a family member making the food we learned about and reflecting on how it all comes together. From being grateful to inquisitive., from education to entertainment. And it’s all through they eyes of the one and only… Cause, Big Boi’s Gotta Eat!
