Bravotv.com: Can you tell us a little more about “Girl Eating Guts?” What’s the weirdest thing you guys have eaten?
Andouille sausage in Paris. Great guts at St. John’s Restaurant in London.

Bravotv.com: Did you get to try the other chefs’ stuff? What did you think?
Yes. The dishes were fantastic.

Bravotv.com: What is your favorite type of offal?
I like liver, lamb’s tongue, and veal head.

Bravotv.com: What was your reaction to the judges’ comments?
I thought they were to judge us more on the challenge than what we would do in our restaurant.

Bravotv.com: How did competing differ than you thought it would?
It was a different arena for me. I am not competitive in the “challenge” sort of way. Good food is about doing it right, not quick.

Bravotv.com: Anything else you’d like to add?
The Magical Elves were so very magical and delightful!
