There are more ways than ever to be a chef today, something that’s become a bit of a sub-theme this season on The Front Burner. This week, we talk to Brian Bistrong about the myriad opportunities available to chefs in 2017, something he knows intimately, having been chef de cuisine to David Bouley, owner of his own restaurant (Braeburn), chef of Wolfgang Puck’s Test Kitchen, and now Corporate Executive Chef for Dean & DeLuca. ┬áBrian discusses all of these roles and as a bonus, was once executive chef of Jimmy’s own restaurant The Harrison, so we tackle the unique give and take of that relationship as well.
