Watching some TV the other night (on the DVR). “Chopped” is a guilty pleasure – always fun to see what those guys will do.
So imagine my surprise and delight when one of the contestants was introduced as a food truck chef.
And he won!
Alan Harding, of course, is more than just a food truck chef – he is something of a legend in his native Brooklyn with a number of successful restaurants in his past. He says that he moved into the truck so he could have more time with his family, but he made it VERY clear that he hasn’t lost his passion or his chops in the kitchen.
He also came across as simultaneously inventive and just a delightful character. I’d love to also see him on Top Chef Masters some season!
