We’re not sure what the odds are of two Nashville chefs turning up in New York City on the same day, but somehow they did, and we were lucky to book them both for back-to-back interview sessions. First up: Chopped judge and prolific chef and restaurateur Maneet Chauhan takes us through her life and career, from her Indian childhood to her culinary training at the Culinary Institute of America to chef gigs in Chicago and the Tri-State area and ultimately to a home and success in Nashville. Then Andy Little narrates his singular career, which took him from Pennsylvania Dutch country to the Inn at Little Washington to other jobs before ultimately settling in Nashville and opening Josephine restaurant, currently in its fifth year. (Special thanks to The Mermaid Inn for providing us a space for these interviews.)
