Richard Blais is one of our favorite Top Chef "cheftestants," so we were thrilled to have him join BFTV for a video interview! The Top Chef: All-Stars champ, who's now working with the folks at Benefiber, chatted with us about the importance of healthy eating - complete with a demonstration of a risotto recipe that will help add some much-needed fiber to our daily diet.
He also discussed his adventures in competitive cooking, including if there was more satisfaction in his Top Chef victory because it was the All-Stars season, whether or not the chefs themselves actually take anything away from participating in TV shows, and what we can learn from their exploits.
Plus: if Richard could pick his dream brigade, who would he want working alongside him in his kitchen?
