About a year ago, I started noticing more chefs getting into cycling – Top Chef Masters Neal Fraser and Chris Cosentino, specifically. I’m not talking about casual strolls through the neighborhood either. I saw them riding expensive carbon fiber road bikes on long rides, climbing big hills. I followed both on the Strava app (back when I was still into that sort of thing) and it was refreshing to see how serious they were about it. I’ve always been a fan of life balance.
In the video above, the guys at Chrome Industries visited Chris Cosentino at his restaurant Cockscomb and talked about how the creative process is a lot like skateboarding, what cycling means to chefs, and why there’s a vintage bike helmet hanging in his restaurant.
