Can-Do Foodie Stud of the Month: Tom Colicchio
Tom Colicchio - of head-shaving, swagger-walking, steak-searing Top Chef fame - used his formidable forearms to Heimlich a savory morsel from Joan Nathan's trachea last night, thus saving her James-Beard-award-winning life. The dramatic deed went down in DC at the Art.Food.Hope event, where foodie VIPs cavorted with government VIPs "for the children" under the graces of aspiring White House chef, Alice Waters.
That Colicchio. He gets it done.
I myself am a survivor of a prime rib incident that nearly 86'd me at 13. While my parents freaked, our dinner guest calmly got up and did the dislodging. Everyone should know how to perform it on adults and children, just in case you need to be a hero like Mr. Craft Steak.
