Celeb Chefs' Kitchen 101 Twitter Chat Recap

Thank you to all of those that joined us for our Celeb Chefs' Kitchen 101 Twitter Chat! We had a great Twitter chat with celebrity chefs and food experts Bryan Voltaggio, Daniel Boulud, Michael Chiarello, Hillary Mickell from Foodily, Veronica Chan from Gojee, and Amanda Hesser from Food52. Followers were able to ask us any kitchen or culinary question that came to mind. The Macy's sponsored Twitter chat was a great success and the ten followers with the best questions were entered to win a free cookbook.

Food Republic did an awesome job of assembling an all-star cast and the questions from followers were certainly engaging! Followers asked everything from cooking pork shanks to the chef's favorite ingredient that they can't live without. Here's a short recap of some questions that followers were able to personally ask some of their favorite celebrity chefs and their responses.
