The great American chef Charlie Palmer sat down with Andrew the other day at the top of the Archer Hotel in Midtown Manhattan to talk over his life and career, from The River Cafe to Aureole to his collection of restaurants on both coasts of the United States. During this free-ranging interview, they also discuss the relevancy of sports to cooking; teamwork in the kitchen; and how he keeps things fresh after all this time. (Note: This is a wonderful companion interview to our next episode, with Claire Welle.)
