In this episode of the Restaurant Misfits podcast, Brett interviews Elena Besser, a Brooklyn-based, Chicago-bred Chef and TV Host. She hosts live cooking classes on Food Network Kitchen, and can be seen on The Cooking Channel’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate” as well as Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay”.
Elena Besser firmly believes food and entertainment should be intertwined and makes some strong points behind this. Just in the way that she describes food and her dishes made me so hungry I ran to our office kitchen directly after this podcast to go devour my lunch early! I can’t exactly explain what she did but it was insane.
Elena is also Host of the new show Breakfast with Besser, a celebrity cooking show, where she chats with celebrity guests, including some of Hollywood’s hungriest stars as she guides them in cooking breakfast dishes specifically crafted for them. Elena’s passion for spreading accessible and exciting cooking and culinary tips to others shines through everything she does. We had such a great conversation and there’s so much value punched into this episode so let’s get into it!
