Watch A Day in the Life of Chef Stephanie Izard

Following last week's Mario Batali episode, the latest installment of the Hulu video series A Day in the Life (co-created by Morgan Spurlock) follows Chicago chef Stephanie Izard through a typical day of running her restaurant Girl & The Goat. She gets started somewhere around 6:30 a.m. to check in with her breadmaker and butcher (fun fact: he's a vegetarian) and they go all the way through service, dropping in tidbits about Izard's culinary history and thoughts on how much time chefs should be spending in their own kitchens.

Most interestingly, about halfway through there's a planning meeting — and tour of — Izard's spinoff restaurant Little Goat. Here are a few things that Little Goat is not: a "chef-driven diner" or a bakery because, as Izard puts it, "I think that makes people think you're going to get cupcakes and shit too. And we're not making cupcakes. And I'm not making wedding cakes. We're not doing any of that crap."
