On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we welcome jill-of-all-trades, Gail Simmons. Special Projects Director at Food & Wine Magazine, judge on Top Chef and Top Chef Duels (Bravo, WED 10PM EST), as well as host of FYI’s The Feed (FYI, THURS, 10PM EST), Gail may be best know for organizing events and overseeing competitions, but she also knows the challenges of one-upmanship. Gail’s modesty precedes her, having toiled as a food writer in Toronto, cooked in cutthroat NYC kitchens like Le Cirque 2000, worked with famed restaurateur Daniel Boulud, and assisted in the offices of Vogue’s own Jeffery Steingarten. Her book, “Talking with My Mouth Full: My Life as a Professional Eater”, may chronicle her life until now, but how does Gail continue to keep separate her true self from her on-camera personality. Or does she?
