Chef Dale Drops By BTC
Hi Chef Dale and welcome to Blogging Top Chef. We appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to answer our questions.
US: This has to be the most controversial episode since season 2. Fans are outraged at your dismissal. Can you tell us what went through your mind when Padma told you to pack your knives and go?
Dale: Well when Padma told me I was going home I just though to myself that I made a big mistake by being executive chef, should have let Lisa be that.
US: Does Lisa have dirty pictures of Andy Cohen or something? How the heck has she stayed on the show so long?
Dale: I really have no idea how she's still there and people like Zoi and Jen aren't.
US: You seemed to have worked well with most of the other chefs. Do you feel you are a team player?
Dale: I know I'm a team player, ask any of my chefs or cooks in my kitchen. This is not work but a competition, some people just aren't manageable.
US: It was great seeing some of the chefs again. Have you remained close with any of your fellow TC contestants?
Dale: I'm still friends with most of the NYC crew, matter of fact all the NYC boys went out for drinks. We're all cool.
US: Tell us something about you that would surprise us.
Dale: I'm pretty socially awkward.
US: Are there any charities or special projects you would to talk about?
Dale: Well I'm always looking to create good food , but besides that I'm looking to put out a screenplay about the restaurant life.
Thank you so much Chef Dale, stop by anytime.
