In this episode of Chef’s Story, host Dorothy Cann Hamilton asks French chef Alain Sailhac, Executive Vice President and Dean Emeritus at The International Culinary Center, about the food scarcity problem throughout his remarkable upbringing in southwest France during World War II. After the break, Alain tells us some tales about a caviar mountain, a coffee overdose, and the times he went to jail for over-salting. Finally, he talks about his time at Le Cirque. This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market.

“No, [our lack of food] didn’t make me angry, because it was the situation, you cannot do anything.” [10:30]
