Well, that’s all changed.
You see, yesterday Top Chef head honcho Tom Colicchio saved a life. And now this foodie’s a fan.
According to this article, Colicchio saved the life of Joan Nathan, a James Beard-award winning cookbook author and host of the Art.Food.Hope inaugural events in D.C. Nathan choked on a piece of chicken and after shouts of, “Does anyone know the Heimlich maneuver?” Colicchio stepped up — pardon the pun — to the plate.
The author managed to chat with Colicchio and Nathan later in the evening and the hero had this to say: “I just happened to be nearby.” Nathan was more effusive about the Top Chef; “He’s so strong!”
