Today’s podcast hosts Ryan Reiss, Mehran Khaghani and Kitty Reynolds welcome the very amazing chef Leia Gaccione! She’s been a chef on all those show you love, Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Top Chef, Iron Chef and on and on!

Also celebrating a podcast first, Leia is the first guest who is both the guest and the chef! You may remember her as the chef from Episode 12 where she cooked up a feast for the guest of that episode, comedian Ben Bailey. In this episode however, she’s brought her incredible skills to the Comedy Cellar to share some of her signature dishes from her restaurant South + Pine in Morristown, NJ. It’s an absolute must visit if you’re in the neighborhood. Okay, let’s cheat!
