June 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Glance at the cover of the most recent issue of Rolling Stone. The extraordinary but flawed actor is described as “America’s Last Prisoner of War”. The prison is clean and minimal. In the kitchen, the journalist describes pictures of the A-lister’s kids and Hollywood mementos on the refrigerator door. Count the times you’ve pulled open your own fridge feeling anxious, hearing nothing but the light buzzing, the shelves empty.
Not his. Behind the milk, the prisoner’s last meals lay supine; like goddesses, organic, comforting, and high end. This is how you stabilize a celebrity with an appetite for trouble. Nourish him with food, designed and prepared by Chef K.
Make sure she’s accomplished. If she’s got at least ten years of culinary experience, ask where she got started. Chef K tells you about her first gig at Boa Steakhouse. Act interested when she tells you she was the Executive Pastry Chef. You detect an accent as she describes the challenges of managing a staff and the rewards of creating a successful catering company. She’s from the Philippines. Nod your head and think she must be skilled in International Cuisine. Of course. Of course. Chef K responds with this phrase often. Of course working as James Cameron’s Executive Personal Chef was a high point in her career. Ask what it’s like to work for the man who directed one of the highest grossing films of all time. Was he difficult? Chef K doesn’t answer. You think that’s professional. Discreet.
Do that thing that people do with their lips, tilt their heads and open their eyes wide when she adds that working for the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia is fascinating: the party planning, the cooking for large family gatherings, the fundraising; the decadence. Do that thing again with your lips, whistle in disbelief. Chef K tells you that here, in Los Angeles, celebrity is prestige and she’s been feeding kings and queens for centuries.
