Iron Cheffage

chiarello-iron-chef.jpgChef Michael Chiarello on why he went on Next Iron Chef: "[W]hile shows like Top Chef Masters and Next Iron Chef have possibly elevated the profession, there’s a kind of circus aspect to it that’s hard to ignore. On the one hand, my being on television does help fill the seats at Bottega. On the other hand... I wanted to prove to myself – and the people watching — that my skills haven’t been put out to pasture." [ISSF]
