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: Chef Love

There is so much chef love backstage and in the press room.  Great to see the collegiality, handshakes, and hugs.  It's a fun brotherhood to watch. Wonder where all the women chefs are....?

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.

Apron Anxiety: D.C. Gets Snubbed

Best chef in my neck of the woods is next....D.C. Damn, Jeff Michaud the one guy with a resto in Philly won. Oh well. I was hoping for a Voltaggio moment but I guess he's famous enough for now. This goes along with my theory, no good food in D.C.! Besides the obvious ;)

Apron Anxiety: Bernie Sun

Bernie Sun is accepting his award....adorable, self-deprecating, and, of course, drinking wine. He said, "Oh my god, I can't feel my feet!" Very charming. Speech-wise, he is the Sandra Bullock of the night.
