About 2 years back, I attending a tasting of fried chicken from all across the 5 boroughs that included one of my favorite spots, Blue Ribbon. I could hardly contain my excitement.
More Fried Chicken...
The famous Red Rooster...
...and it's equally as famous owner, the talented, Marcus Samuelsson.
Pampano-one of my favorite midtown Latin restaurants
So Chef Flay was quite nice but I noticed he didn't really take pics with fans. Not that he said no or anything but that no one really asked. He has a very intense presence and I'm pretty sure that if I wasn't in the industry/a girl, this pic may not have happened...but it did and I (and my mother) love him.
My hubby with one of our favorites, David Burke!
"The Sandwich King"!!!
Chef Anne Burrell was bombarded with picture requests. To my pleasant surprise, she took a pic with everyone who asked. It took her like 30 minutes to eat one taco due to the interruptions. I had the pleasure with working with her later on a filming at Zengo Restaurant and she was also super pleasant.
