Yes, Chef Dinner

Every single city I’ve visited for the “Yes, Chef” book tour has taught me something new about the community there. Whether it’s a book signing, demo, radio spot or TV interview, I’ve gotten the chance to meet so many new faces and reconnect with old friends. What has most impressed me is how each chef has interpreted the memoir in their own way, translating their thoughts into some pretty stellar menus. Read More
