The timing could not have been better. It was just the other day that we watched the finale of season 9 of Food Network Star, which ended up being won by Damaris Phillips.
One of the other contestants, who was an early favourite to win, was Viet Pham.
His claim to fame besides his restaurant in Utah (Forage), is that he beat Bobby Fley on Iron Chef America. That is a huge accomplishment to put on the resume.
So, the guy knows food.
