Fit Fab senior writer Shannon Rose of “The Rose Hollywood Report” sits down with Chef Edward Lee who appeared on Bravo’s “Top Chef” season 9. He talks to Rose about his career, his involvement with Bravo’s “Top Chef” and the new Colonel Sanders Cookbook and Autobiography.
Chef Edward Lee’s story – and his food – could only happen in America. One part Southern soul, one part Asian spice and one part New York attitude, Lee is a Korean-American who grew up in Brooklyn, trained in classical French kitchens and has spent the better part of a decade in Louisville, Kentucky. He appeared on Bravo’s “Top Chef” season 9 where he was a semifinalist for “Best Chef: Southeast.” He has been featured in Gourmet, New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Southern Living and many other national publications. He has challenged culinary royalty on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America” and appeared on the CBS “The Early Show” preparing an eclectic three-course meal for a family of four for under $40.
Rose discusses with Chef Lee the new cookbook and autobiography of Colonel Sanders, his experience on Top Chef, and his career as a chef and what inspired him to partake in the culinary arts.
