FP39: Lunch with Jean-Louis

05 Feb 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, podcast, sensuality

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 I’ve ever had.
