For the last Chef and Tell interview of 2011, Lori Midson talked with Dana Rodriguez, the executive chef of Bistro Vendome, about everything from a Mexican girl making French food to her inspirational life story.
The result left readers hungry to know more...and eat more.
I haven't been to Bistro Vendome in a long time, and now I want to go back. Chef Rodriguez clearly knows what she's doing. It's always a pleasure to read one of these interviews where the chef isn't full of themselves.
Besides, everyone knows that Mexican girls make the best cooks! :)
