Podcast 97 – Bruce Kalman

“Jersey is all about Italian red sauce and Americanized Chinese Food. And bagels.” – Bruce Kalman

Bruce Kalman Top Chef

Bruce Kalman and I are bonded for life – he is the only person I’ve met outside of high school from the same part of NJ as me. So of course when I found out my fellow Jersey boy is going to be competing on the next season of Top Chef, I had to have him on the podcast ASAP.

We talk about Jersey food (duh), Jewish food, the malls of Paramus, how Bruce became a chef, and how to cut a mango.
