The 1980′s was a pivotal time for both cuisine and up and coming celebrity chefs.  1982 in particular brought forth two superstars straight out of the CIA: Michael Chiarello (CIA 1982) and Todd English (CIA 1982). These two former college roommates and culinary luminaries will reunite to share stories of their days at school, what it was like for them to forge careers as chefs and restaurateurs during this time, and how the job of chef has changed since their graduation, all while each prepares the dish that they say launched their careers.
