Apron Anxiety: Q & A with Top Chef's Mike Isabella



May 03, 2010


AA: How is José [Andrés] REALLY as a boss? Mike Isabella: José as a boss is energetic and edgy. He's tough. He has high expectations.  He's not a screamer.... anymore. He's calmed down a little because he's just so successful and so busy, he doesn't have time to sweat the small stuff. AA: You just got married and I'm about to marry a chef myself ...should I run? MI: Some of us are definitely marriage material—but not all! If you're gonna be a chef's wife you're not going to see a lot of him. And you've got to be very, very, very secure.
