Samantha Ettus interviews four-star chef Eric Ripert

Perhaps it is no wonder that a French boy whose mother provided a white linen gourmet meal every day would grow up to become a world renowned four-star executive chef and co-owner of New York’s Le Bernardin.  Eric regularly appears on Top Chef and a new PBS series airing this fall and his expertise as chef and restaurateur are featured in his recently release third book, On The Line. He is a great artist whose passion has led him to spend 20 years creating a single dish and that is why I am Obsessed with Eric Ripert.

xO,
Sam

    This was a great show, awesome content with thoughtful questions and answers. Being a huge foodie, guests like Chef Ripert will keep me coming back.

  2. Michael Says:

    Great interview. I loved the question about what Chef Ripert doesn’t like to eat–I would answer the exact same way! I was a little surprised about his comment about Adria’s cooking though–At El Bulli Adria always uses the best ingredients and also cares about where the food comes from and who produces it.

  3. Margaret Says:

    He’s an interesting person along with his expert appearances on Top Chef. Nice interview!

  4. Ivan Says:

    Thank you so much for this interview. I have cooked in NYC and in Paris restaurants so this was especially intesting for me. His honesty was refreshing. I really miss the French way of expressing ideas and concepts. Keep up the good work! And, good questions. Oh, almost forgot, I have eaten there and it was good, classic, correctly cooked and seasoned food. That actually means alot.

  8. Joy Says:

    Fantastic interview! I enjoyed it immensely, it was very engaging. I was laughing at the end when you two were asking him about the “junk” food he eats.

  9. Darren Barr Says:

    Eric Ripert is a brilliant and passionate chef. I’m really happy I got to watch this. Thanks guys, great show!

  10. Justopia Says:

    Great interview! It felt relaxed, was insightful and interesting and wasn’t a run of the mill, predictable look into the life of an incomparable chef. It was wonderful hearing him share his best and worst culinary moments and learning about where and what he likes to eat.

    Great show you two…as a restauranteur I really appriciated this as Chef Ripert is one of my heros. im not really your key demographic as a 22 year old male but so far ive watched about five shows and loved them all…would love to see an interview with others like eric Anthony Bourdain and Chef Thomas Keller…also i think gary needs to co host reather than coe in at the end the show gets so much beer when you two are together.

    Great interview…I actually enjoyed the questions this time. After seeing Eric cameo on numerous shows, it was nice to finally hear more about him and his scene.

    BTW, I was actually thinking about Durrian fruit when you asked what food he wouldn’t eat. I will literally eat anything you put in front of me, except Durrian. It’s tag-line should be: “The fruit that gives you heartburn.”

    Definitely my favorite episode so far. Eric seems so nice! I feel the same way about a Burger King Whopper as Eric does the Big Mac. I crave them every now and then. If I get one, I’m always disappointed and regret eating it too! One difference is that I’m not famous so I can buy it myself.

  16. David Dadekian Says:

    That was wonderful, thank you very much to everyone involved.

  17. Paul Says:

    WOW - just popped back into Obsessed after a 3 week break. Looks like things are flying along wonderfully. How fantastic for Samantha and Gary. Maybe the key to success if to interview interesting, intelligent, passionate and wonderful humans like this fella. Great work. Paul (Sydney. Aust)
