Chef Mike Lata of FIG (which stands for "food is good") in Charleston, South Carolina — fresh off his appearance on Iron Chef America — was on Nightline's Platelist last night, cooking up succotash and pig trotters. Lata discusses latchkey kid cooking (Rice Krispies! Pancakes! Shake 'n Bake!) He also talks about chefs as pirates and the high you get when you cook something perfectly.
