Brian Baumgartner

Brian Baumgartner became a household name as one of Dunder Mifflin’s accountants “Kevin Malone” on NBC’s Emmy-winning TV series, The Office. Just like his fictional character, Brian is equally passionate about chili. Brian continues his partnership with BUSH’S® Beans as an official spokesperson for the company, who also takes chili seriously. Additionally, Brian was invited by the International Chili Society to be one of their World Championship Chili Cook-Off judges in 2021. Seriously Good Chili Cookbook is Brian’s first published cookbook that reflects his deep-rooted love for this classic comfort food, features his very own “Perfect Pot of Chili” recipe, and contains the world’s best chili recipes contributed by celebrity chefs, restaurant owners, industry leaders, and chili cook-off champions. Brian is also a New York Times best-selling author of his latest book, Welcome to Dunder Mifflin, as well as host of the hit podcasts, The Office Deep Dive with Brian Baumgartner and Off The Beat with Brian Baumgartner.
