Chris Cosentino talks about the unforeseen effects of television fame on his physical health and his business

At Mad 4, Chris Cosentino talks about the negative side of television fame.

Chef Chris Cosentino (Porcellino restaurant, formerly Incanto) took to the stage at this year’s Mad symposium to discuss the impact that celebrity chef-dom and television fame had on his work and true passions.

In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” Cosentino, who first appeared on television during Iron Chef America (he lost to Mario Batali in Battle Garlic by a single point), expressed his regret over later getting involved in a show that focused less on highlighting his talents as a chef than creating outlandish obstacles for him to “overcome”: an eight-pound, all-meat, deep dish pizza; snakes; 10 pounds of baked beans, to name a few.

The fame associated with Cosentino’s televised antics did nothing to improve his standing amongst his peers. “I want my restaurants to be busy and I want cooks to want to come work for me,” he says of his early days on Iron Chef America.

What happened instead was humiliation, physical illness, and version of Cosentino that the chef himself didn’t recognize.

Watch the full video below for Cosentino’s moving look back at his television fame.

15 Bizarre Foods Andrew Zimmern Wouldn't Touch (10 He Recommends)

Well, the question remains though, if this man will in fact eat “anything,” is there a particular cuisine or food that he’ll shy away from?

“Give it to Mikey, he’ll eat anything!”

Anyone else remember those commercials? If you don’t, it’s okay. We’re sure you get the drift, or will in a couple of seconds.

Andrew Zimmern has quite the reputation on the Travel Channel and in culinary circles around the globe, as he too is likely to eat anything, and he too has millions of viewers screaming out in shock: “He likes it! He really likes it!” much like the lovable kid in those commercials from back in the day.

Zimmern, a television personality who travels the globe sampling some of the world’s most outrageous foods in Bizarre Foods, as well as a plethora of others, is no stranger to the bizarre, as he has indeed sampled some pretty interesting dishes.

A former professional chef, he started his culinary education at the age of 14 and cooked and managed some pretty important restaurants in the US. He definitely has a vast knowledge of food and applies it in his travels and adventures in the more original side of the culinary societies of the world, essentially, to quote good old Captain Kirk on this one, he boldly goes where no other culinarian is likely to go, or should we say boldly eats?

Well, the question remains though, if this man will in fact eat “anything,” is there a particular cuisine or food that he’ll shy away from? Or even, if he has tasted something particularly icky, is he likely to eat it again.

Join us in this article as we count down the foods that he will probably shy away from in the future and a few that he recommends, but beware, we ain’t talkin’ burgers and fries here!
