This is Elizabeth Faulkner. She is one of my all time favorite chefs and one of my heroes. She was a competitor on The Next Iron Chef All-Stars and also on the redemption competiton. Unfortunatly she didn’t win, and i remember crying because she was the first female chef that I really got behind and supported. Her food at Krescendo is unbelievable, some of the best I’ve ever had. She was one of the nicest people i’ve met. I could barely talk while she was at our table, i was just smiling like an idiot. When i first walked in, i took a business card and put it in my phone case, so that you could see the logo through the case. When my dad took this picture, she saw it and thought i had a phone case with her logo. She thought it was so cool that you could see it that she took my phone and went around the restaurant to show her business partner. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life. Hopefully I can keep going back to her restaurant because I loved it. I’m still in shock that I met her and I am just so freaking happy!!!
