Interview Chef Michael Symon for Castello Cheese
I am so over the moon thrilled to have had the opportunity to Interview Chef Michael Symon for Castello Cheese. I have watched Chef Symon for years on TV. So, I have to say he is my number one favorite celebrity chef. I started watching The Chew, his current show from the beginning, almost 5 years ago and tape it everyday religiously.
So, to speak to Michael in person, on the phone, was an occasion that I was surely not going to pass up. I clearly jumped at the opportunity.
I recently worked with Castello Cheese, making these Gorgonzola Walnut Honey Bites. Chef Symon is showing you how delicious honey, nuts and cheese are together, here in this photo. I totally agree as the fast and easy appetizer I made, was a true hit!
I am so pleased to present to you this interview I have with Chef Micahel Symon. I was crazy nervous speaking to one of my heroes!! As I said I watch The Chew everyday and Michael’s infectious laugh always brightens everyday for me. Never mind to say I am drooling over his deeply satisfying meals and his effervescent attitude toward life, food and family.
Chef Michael Symon has been in the spotlight for awhile now. Either with his very famous restaurant, Lola to newer endeavors like Mabel’s BBQ, Roast, Bar Symon and B Spot. He has written four cookbooks, Michael Symon’s Live To Cook, Carnivore, 5 in 5, and 5 in 5 For Every Season.
I have watched and rooted for him on the very popular Iron Chef America series. He accomplished a very impressive 28-6 win/loss ratio, therefore being one of the top competitors.
When Michael is not working he is riding his motorcycle through Cleveland. He also loves gardening in his backyard, cooking at home, playing golf and spending time with his wife Liz, and their Old English Bulldog, Ozzy.
