Apron Anxiety: Bouley

David Bouley is presenting now. He was my first chef interview ever—for Gotham magazine—ten years ago. He had me meet him at Balthazar and was very elusive and sexy. He just awarded Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison the Best Chef: New York title.

Carol Blymire: Tim Hollingsworth

Rising Star Award winner Tim Hollingsworth is backstage beaming, as well he should be. It was fun to watch him come offstage and shake hands with chef Keller, toasting each other. Tim's been in New York since Saturday, doing some work with the Bocuse D'or team. He is 30 and has been cooking since he was 18. I love this guy.
