When the first season of Restaurants on the Edge dropped to Netflix on Friday, February 28th, it quickly gained a tonne of fans. Now, the show is back for its second season, just three months following its initial release. Season 2 drops to Netflix on Friday, May 8th.
The show takes on the format of Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares: we watch as struggling restaurants, cafés and bars are given a new lease of life. Rather than notorious chef Gordon, Restaurants on the Edge sees a chef, a restauranteur, and a designer travel around the world finding such restaurants and working their magic.
The resident chef on the series is Dennis Prescott, who has achieved culinary fame in a relatively short space of time. Find out everything you need to know about Dennis here!
Who is Dennis?
Dennis Prescott is a Canadian chef, author, food photographer and TV presenter. He currently lives in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada with his wife.
Famous Birthdays have reported that Dennis is 38 years old and was born on June 15th, 1981.
According to publisher Harper Collins, five years ago Dennis was working as a musician who “didn’t know how to cook.” But in just three short years that all changed and Dennis quickly established himself as one of food’s rising stars.
He published his first-ever cookbook, ‘Eat Delicious: 125 Recipes For Your Daily Dose of Awesome’, in 2017.

Dennis on Restaurants on the Edge
Out of all three hosts on Restaurants on the Edge, Dennis by far gets the best job. He spends most of his time exploring the city or town where they’ve ended up, trying foods and meeting other culinary-minded folk.
In the Hong Kong episode in season 1, Dennis went on a whistle stop tour of Hong Kong’s street food scene, taken with a guide. He tried everything from snake soup to beef innards.
Sounds like a pretty jammy deal if you ask us!
