Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Feb 16, 2021

Alex Guarnaschelli says THIS about our podcast conversation:

"It's like a really good taco. Every bite is different."

In this Really Famous classic episode from February 2019, Food Network celebrity chef (Chopped, Iron Chef America, Fix Me a Plate) and executive chef (Butter) also called it a "roller coaster ride."
