Eitan Bernath is a Restaurant Influencer —

At 20-years-old, Eitan Bernath is one of the hottest names and biggest talents in the food entertainment industry. After an appearance on The Food Network’s cooking competition show, Chopped as a high-spirited 11-year old, Eitan (@Eitan) immediately got to work building his brand.

“I’ve treated this as a business since I was 12,” the young entrepreneur tells Restaurant Influencers podcast host Shawn P. Walchef of https://calibbq.media. “So when my episode aired on Chopped, I started a food blog and the third blog post on my website was sponsored.”

At age 19, Eitan locked a recurring role on The Drew Barrymore Show, which makes him the first TikTok Content creator to leverage the TikTok stardom into a regular television appearance.

Now at 20, one of Eitan’s childhood aspirations is materializing as he launches his very first cookbook, Eitan Eats the World.
