Andrew Talks to Chefs kicks off its second season** with the chef of Andrew’s favorite restaurant of the moment, Missy Robbins of Lilia in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. From a corner table at the restaurant, the two discuss Missy’s culinary and personal journey to a place that so naturally expresses her ideas of Italian food and hospitality, as well as her recent and very revealing book Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner … Life. Along the way, Missy shares her memories of working for Charlie Trotter in Chicago (her very daunting first kitchen gig) and for Tony Mantuano at Spiaggia, as well as learning to love Brooklyn, the unique challenges of an open kitchen, and the value of significant time away from pro cooking.
