Ernie, a professional eater since 1964, got real frustrated one year with wasting money on fast food and decided it was time to save money by learning how to cook. Years later "Just The Cook" was born in his kitchen in Germantown, Tennessee as an online cooking show that aired 3 times a week! Ernie is a proud U.S. Marine who served with both 3rd BN 8th Marines and in Iraq with 3rd BN 23rd Marines. When you get to the boat ask Ernie about the rest of the story!
Phillip, Phillip, Phillip... Where do we start? Phillip is a very seasoned cook with experience in multiple restaurants from Memphis, Arkansas, Mississippi and to Panama City, Florida. After Phillip moved back to Panama City he walked by the boat one day and spoke briefly with Ernie. As he left Phillip whispered to himself, "I'll work there one day"! Turns out Ernie was thinking the same thing! Since then Phillip has become an integral part of Just The Cook and customers love him!
