Wabi Sabi’s owner, Chef Thoa Nguyen, has been in the press lately, including an announcement that she’s appearing on a Food Network show competing against Bobby Flay. From the official press release:
In January of this year, Seattle chef Thoa Nguyen competed on national television. The format of this popular show pits two professional chefs against one another for the opportunity to do battle with TV personality/chef Bobby Flay. The episode featuring Chef Thoa is titled “Homeland” and will air this upcoming May 14th – check local cable provider for times. The results of the rivalry will not be known until that time. “The experience was great. I had fun and thank everyone who made this possible for me”, says Chef Thoa.
For those who haven’t met Thoa, she is seemingly mild mannered, petit, funny and exceedingly friendly by nature. Beneath her lovely façade, pulsates a competitor who can only be compared to a fierce, white tiger. Whatever the results of this encounter: Chef Thoa, the contestant, will prove to be entertaining!
