Aaron May Dishes About Why He Pisses People Off and Describes His Last Supper (You'll Love the Dessert)
Name a giant in the American food scene and explain why you admire this person: Wolfgang Puck has somehow transcended the celebrity chef cliche. He was the first celebrity chef, and he sells tomato sauce on QVC. But all of that notwithstanding, he has a ton of restaurants serving great food, you never see him on some silly reality show, and he is still amazingly relevant among real chefs.
Name a local chef you admire and explain why: Matt Carter. That guy is a great cook -- hard working, creative and inspiring. I know that I'm going to get a great meal when I go to his places, and if I need a chef to do a charity event, he is always the first "yes." Matt has a love for the kitchen, and it's obvious.
Who would you most like to cook for?: I like to cook for my peers. Nothing makes me happier than when other chefs come in to eat, which they do a lot. They know what they are eating, and their approval means more than anything.
