What do you do when you're already a successful chef who's done everything in the culinary world -- from owning several restaurants to chatting up your powerful friends in Congress about enacting nutritional policies?
You hit up the TV world, duh!
And, that's exactly what Washington, D.C.-based Chef Jose Andres is doing.
Jose has tapped to consult on the upcoming NBC TV prequel to the Hannibal Lecter-themed movies.
You might be wondering why the show's producers would want to bring in a food consultant, but, if you've ever seen "Silence of the Lambs," you'll remember that Hannibal has quite the refined palate (think human liver "with some fava beans and a nice Chianti").
In order to research his new role, Jose has been eating up a storm in "lung dishes."
And, while that makes us feel a tiny bit queasy, we're excited to see what our favorite tapas chef creates!
DiD yOu KnOw? ... While Jose Andres gets tons of recognition for his exceptional restaurants, we think he's great because of his philanthropic work -- including his involvement with Washington's D.C. Central Kitchen (website, here) and his Think Food Tank (here).
