The man himself…Top Chef Master competitor…Jonathan Waxman. This was immedaitely following his demo at Cultivate Chicago. Before the demo, I decided to introduce myself and blatantly tell him how good his roasted chicken is. Probably the best roasted chicken ever. His was very humble, appreciative, and finished by saying, “Thank you for the kind words.” There was no air of snobbery. He was a big teddy bear. And I wanted to hug him.
