My dear friend and master chef Jean-Louis Gerin (zee big bad Beard Award winner) invited me to lunch at Opia in New York, where we got to discuss his new artisanal spiced chocolates, his chocolate body paint/spatula combo, and masculinity/femininity in the U.S. vs. Europe. There is never a dull moment when Jean-Louis is around, so this is one of the most engaging (and fun!) chef conversations Iâ€™ve ever had.
