MemorEATS: Christopher Lee

"I was cooking dinner for my family and I forgot the garlic bread in the oven under the broiler. By the time I got to the oven, the bread was blazing and the only thing to do was to open the sliding door and throw a flaming sheet tray across my yard. I wrecked the oven, but the neighbors got a good show." –JBF Award Winner Christopher Lee, Aureole, NYC
