Two of the country’s most talented chefs, John Besh and Michael Symon, compete in kitchen stadium, Sunday Night on the Food Network. FN so secretive about it, even I wasn’t able to procure an advance screening. Damn (thanks Lisa!). And I’m going to be at Book Passage in San Francisco, then en route to Seattle flogging the new book (and so far meeting excellent people, thank you St. Louis and Atlanta, and especially Viking kitchen staffs). Can I catch the finale in an airport?
I heard from several Besh supporters here in Atlanta (and no Symon supporters), and Besh getting a lot of national press (deserved). Judging from comments here, Symon has popular appeal. Both are great chefs and business owners, and most importantly here, superlative cooks. Who will it be? And where does Symon get his pants? And who does Besh’s hair? Can’t WAIT to hear comments on Monday!
