Executive Chef, Taco Asylum
Winner, “Cutthroat Kitchen,” Food Network
What he took away: “Never surrender. It’s all about being able to take what is thrown at you and just keep pushing through until the end.”

Amar 4
Chef-partner, Broadway by Amar Santana
Winner, “Knife Fight,” Esquire Network
Why this show? “I chose it because chefs cook for chefs, and it’s a good showcase for my skills. I won, but the only prize is bragging rights.”

jason quinn3
Chef-owner, Playground
Second Place, “Chopped,” Food Network
Possibility of seeing him on future shows? “Only on our terms. I hated being asked to ‘say that or do that again.’ Honesty is lost when recreating a moment that has passed. I’m not in a rush to do that again.”

Owner, Little Sparrow

Contestant, “Best New Restaurants,” Bravo
What he says was the best lesson: “All the contestants worried about mistakes. We did, too. How you handle them makes all the difference in the world.”

Andrew Gruel
Chef-owner, Slapfish
Host, “Food Truck Face Off” Food Network
What he took away “Ham it up big time for TV. Talk louder, act bigger, speak in clichés.”
