Behind the Scenes with the Real Chef John

video
Here is an outtake from my recent video shoot down in LA with BNE.

From watching my videos, most of you probably thin
k I'm a nice guy who would be a fun and gracious co-worker, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Call me a total diva, but if I have to
perform to such an incredibly high level of excellence -- basically being awesome all the time -- then everyone around me needs to raise their game up to the same level -- from the Executive Producer all the way down to the lowly sweat patter.

CONGRATULATIONS to BNE Executive Producer, Jude, and her husband Greg, who had a beautiful new baby girl this morning! Harper arrived at 3:55 AM, and weighed in at a healthy 7 lb 13oz.

You are the funniest Diva I've ever seen - now, when you get one, post of a picture of that newborn. On Twitter you called it a new baby! When has anyone ever given birth to an old baby?

Hallo Chef john, Im a girl from Denmark and I loooove your food XD but here in Denmark, we dont have the messerment 1 cup... So i was thinking, if you could tell me, how many tablespoons is there in 1 cup??

It would just make it sooo much easier to make your lovely food. XD

Thanks sharing your food with us best regards Dina from Denmart

Chef John is eye catching, ear grabbing and head turning! i stumbled accidentally upon one of your clips while searching for new ideas for my coffee shop in Taipei and i just couldn't get enough of you!! I think we'll need to petition to Travel and Living Taiwan to have a Chef John show~~

I found your no knead bread and became a fanatic fan of your blog.

I love the way you explain things so clearly with humors.

You are an awesome chef.

P.S.
You do have a deep soothing (= sexy) voice without having a cold.
