Here is an interview with Eddie Jackson:

Who is your primary cooking inspiration?

My father is my cooking inspiration.

What are your favorite food blogs (besides your own)?

I honestly haven't found one blog that I truly like, which is why I'm putting my own together.

What is your favorite/least favorite dish to eat?

I think my favorite dish to eat would have to be Jamaican style oxtail. There aren't many things that I don't eat, but if I had to choose my least favorite, it would be SPAM. What the heck is spam!?

What is your favorite/least favorite dish to cook?

My Favorite dish to cook would have to be slow smoking meats in my smoker with my top secret rubs and sauces. My absolute least favorite dish to cook is anything related to sushi. I love to eat it but hate to make it.

What is your favorite go-to dish to bring to a potluck?

My go to dish to bring to a potluck would be my famous Jerk Meatloaf. I get requests for it at least twice a week!

What is your favorite/least favorite type of cuisine and why?

My favorite cuisine would have to be Southern. I feel that Southern cuisine is always made with so much love. I also love Caribbean food. My least favorite cuisine would have to be Indian food because I always need Pepto Bismol afterwards. Not Fun.

What travel destinations have you either been to or want to travel to for food inspiration?

I'm looking forward to visiting a good friend in Jamaica this summer who owns a restaurant there. My cooking style involves a lot of Caribbean flavors.

What are your top 3 songs to cook to?

I love to cook to anything Jazz music. "After the Rain" by Boney James. I also dig a little old school funk like "Single Life" by Cameo. Finally, when I'm really in the zone I'll listen to "Started from the Bottom" by Drake.

Why did you want to be a contestant?

I wanted to become a contestant on "MasterChef" for the experience and the chance to learn and grow my skills. I also felt that it would be a great challenge for me to compete against the best home cooks in America.

What is your favorite comfort food and why?

By far my favorite comfort food is fried chicken with mashed potatoes. Good ol' Fried Chicken!

Pick 3 words that define what meals with friends and family mean to you.

This is very simple ... togetherness, love, fun.
