Chef and restaurateur Bradley Ogden has set up shop in San Jose to film a new television series that he will begin shopping to networks for broadcast.

The show is called Real Food With Chef Bradley Ogden. Ogden moved into a house in the Evergreen neighborhood in southeast San Jose that he’s using as both a residence and a set. Earlier this month, he shot the first episode, which included a Super Bowl watching party at his house. Ogden said he moved to San Jose to be closer to investor and Facebook co-founder Chris Kelly. 

The show is still evolving, but Ogden said it will be an unscripted “community-to-table,” experiential cooking show with his son, Bryan Ogden, who is also a chef. He likens it more to the cinema verite-style of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations than a straight-up cooking show a la Rachael Ray. 

“Everything about it excites me,” Ogden said, adding that it’s been a project in the works for the past 25 years of his career.

Ogden was executive chef at San Francisco’s Campton Place Hotel before opening his first restaurant, the Lark Creek Inn, in 1989. His Lark Creek Restaurant Group went on to open One Market in San Francisco, Yankee Pier in Santa Row and elsewhere, Bradley Ogden at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and Parcel 104 in Santa Clara.

Given the surfeit of chef TV shows, director and executive producer Lee Abbot says what make the show different is it’s about “the community of people that are brought together by a love of real food, from fishermen to artisans to grandmothers, and how Bradley pulls it all together.”

In addition to the TV show, Ogden is launching the Bradley Ogden Restaurant Group and is considering opening a “one-off” restaurant as part of the show, possibly somewhere in the Bay Area.
