Sure, Richard Blais is a Bravo's Top Chef alum and Top Chef: All Stars winner — no big deal. But when he's in Costco, he's just an ordinary shopper with food advice to dole out to strangers.

How to Watch

Watch the Top Chef Season 21 premiere on Wednesday, March 20 at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

Richard's "documentarian" wife Jazmin Blais rolls the smartphone camera video as a stranger asks him about cooking fish — and gets an uncommonly helpful answer! 

Sharing the short clip on Instagram, the chef captioned it, "This lady had no idea who I was but asked if knew about fish. 'Ma’am, I’m an expert,'" he quipped.

"We chatted about copper river sockeye and cooking tips." He added hashtags like "#cheflife" and — to clarify the warehouse store scene — "#costco."  

Hey, we should all get so lucky to run into that kind of stranger when we could use a little advice for a cookout!
