Dorothy Cann Hamilton continues her Chef’s Story series with award winning chef Dan Kluger of the celebrated ABC Kitchen on the Upper East Side of New York City. Dan explains how he went from growing up on NYC pizza and Chinese food to becoming a high end chef. Hear his experiences working for Danny Meyer and Jean Georges and hear what the audition process to get into Tabla was like. Find out how he handles collaborations in the kitchen and why nothing is more rewarding than putting out an excellent dish in the middle of a busy night at a restaurant. From textures to ingredients learn all about what makes Dan’s cooking so sought after and ABC Kitchen so well respected. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
“Being a chef is much more than producing the food, its the full picture of helping with the whole experience – how the food is delivered, what goes on in the front of the house, etc.”
