You may recall a certain tipsy charter guest who proclaimed that chicken is food for "poor people," while rejecting Chef Adrian Martin’s main course of steamed chicken breast with mozzarella, tomato, and basil. It didn't go over well. Chef Adrian responded with a subtle but scorching clapback of his own. And now, Below Deck Med chief stew Hannah Ferrier is weighing in with her two cents on the matter.
The Feast sat down with Hannah at Bravo's L.A. HQ, and we asked what she made of the whole thing. And let's just say Hannah has some very passionate feelings about chicken...
"I eat chicken like every day. I could never give up chicken," she said. "I love chicken!"
How much do you love chicken, Hannah? "The chicken place up the road from me I’ve been going to for 22 years — it’s the best in Sydney. It’s called Charlie’s Chicken, it’s so good. They legitimately give me credit when I put it on my instagram because I go there so much. My girlfriend and me we go once a week. We get together for an afternoon and we get Charlie's and we watch Vanderpump and Real Housewives and stuff and that’s like our highlight of the week."
So Hannah duly established her love of chicken and the frequency with which she consumes it. But what about that socioeconomic point? Oh yes, she had something to say about that explicitly, too.
"The notion that chicken is for poor people is just ridiculous," she said bluntly. "I eat chicken every day — and I got Tiffany, so…" she said while shaking her wrist decked with the luxury brand's baubles.
And there you have it once again loud and clear (with a Tiffany flourish): Chicken is not for poor people. Thank u, next charter guest.
