WAIW Salute: Stephanie Izard

. Thursday, July 9, 2009



We're big fans of food - eating food, cooking food, and watching food on TV. Steve used to cook for football tailgates all the way back in high school, and despite my newly-minted master's degree, my biggest ambition in life is to own and operate a taco truck. So naturally, meeting one of the most famous chefs in Chicago at the game yesterday was exciting.
WAIW was lucky enough to run into Chicago chef Stephanie Izard, who kicked each and every ass on Top Chef Season 3 during her run to the championship. She's opening a new restaurant, The Drunken Goat, soon, and was at Wrigley to throw out the first pitch after a bit of a rain delay. WAIW ran into her in search of beer/hot dogs/the bathroom (I don't remember, but it's got to be one of those) and she was nice enough to take a picture for the blog. She was much nicer than many of us would be if some big-headed guy with a beard snuck up on us and asked to take a picture for the Internet. So here's to you, Chef Izard. And to me, for not making a hackneyed food pun for the entire article - it's my recipe for success. Oh, FUCK.
