Chef Interviews

Learn how to cook from professional chefs. – I have always been curious about what it must be like to be a professional chef. Whether they are a famous TV Celebrity chef or the owner of a small restaurant in a small town in the middle of the country, they all have extensive knowledge I can learn from.

So I decided to send a few chefs I’ve met or found on the internet some questions in the form of a chef interview and their responses were outstanding. These chef interviews give you a glimps into their worlds and offer numerous tips that can help home cooks to be better cooks.
