I am Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. I'm also a judge on CHOPPED and a mentor on ALL-STAR ACADEMY which just premiered last night on the Food Network. AMA!
I'm a Gemini and a mother to a seven-year old. I've been cooking for over 20 years. I live a life steeped in food, but also love muscle cars, Formula 1, and sunsets.
I have a restaurant in Midtown Manhattan called Butter. I work a lot with Alex's Lemonade Stand, which helps fight childhood cancer. And when I'm not working on either of those things, I'm either cooking or judging on CHOPPED or ALL-STAR ACADEMY.
I'm here at reddit New York eating Wheat Thins with Victoria to answer your questions. AMA!
Update: Please continue to follow me on twitter and instagram for my never-ending love affair with food and ingredients. Please check out ALL-STAR ACADEMY on Food Network on Sunday nights. I picked my two mentees and it looks great. But it's a rocky road to the finish.
Thank you! And enjoy!
