    Andrew - Season 4


    Andrew

    AGE: 30

    HOMETOWN: Fort Lauderdale, FL - currently resides in New York City

    PROFESSION: Sous Chef in NYC

    CULINARY EDUCATION: A.S. Culinary Arts, Johnson & Wales, North Miami

    FAVORITE SIMPLE SPRING RECIPE: Diced strawberries, mango, tomato, cucumber, and jicama. Thai dressing (sugar, lime juice, fish sauce and siracha). Thai basil and mint chiffonade.

    BIO: For the past two years, Andrew has studied everything from the French cuisine of Raymond Blanc to the molecular gastronomy of Ferran Adria. With food influences that range from African, Spanish, French and Thai to Vietnamese, Japanese, Latino and Indian, Andrew prides himself on being diverse in the kitchen. When Andrew isn't working, you can find him researching cuisines at a bookstore or shopping for spices that are uncommon and of multicultural influences to adapt to his cuisine. He believes in translating the flavors and techniques from different cultures into innovative interpretations that do not stray far from their origins. His goal is to leave a legacy like the chefs before his time, which shaped him and his fellow chefs minds and refined their techniques. He says he doesn't make food for mere sustenance, but to create an experience that impacts the soul.

    Who knows? Marcel made it all the way to the finale and might have been the Top Chef if he had sous chefs who supported him. I see Andrew graduated from Johnson and Wales, Sam Talbot's alma mater. It's too early to make any predictions or to pick favorites, but this year's field looks particularly strong. The Judges may have a difficult time picking a winner and loser by mid-season.

    more molecular gastronomy - now we may find out whether Marcel's attitude was part of that cirriculum or just an added bonus of being Marcel. I kid, I liked Marcel, but he was a brat. Andrew is thirty and is weilding a meat tenderizer, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now, until we see if he expounds on the superiority of his foams to everyone else's tripe.

    Definitely my least favorite chef/contestant this season. Could he be any more arrogant and full of himself? (And can he say even one complete sentence without cussing? )

    I hope his cooking stands up to his hype and his ego. So far, I'm not sure.

    I found him really annoying. Cussing doesn't really bother me, but he seemed over the top w it. Doesn't he know he's being interviewed? The producers seemed to be showing him a lot. Wonder why. I thought maybe he would pack his knives on the first ep.

    Cursing doesn't bother me, either. But, he seemed to be doing it for no reason other than dramatic effect.....

    I am offended by the swearing. I can understand if it's just a slip up. Hey it happens. Is his vocabulary really that limited that he must use profanities for every other word? It's really not necessary. I hope he's the next one to go!
