Everyone has a favorite food they’re a little ashamed to admit they enjoy. But what’s a “guilty pleasure” food to people who make incredible meals for a living? As part of our interview series Amusing Bouche, we asked 10 chefs to get personal about which foods they’re a little embarrassed to love.


LANDON THOMPSON
Cooks and Soldiers
“Ice cream and Jameson. Not together…usually.”

GAVIN KAYSEN
Spoon and Stable
“Cheetos.”

JASON FRANEY
Restaurant 1833
“Herdez canned salsa—I still make fresh salsa but if I’m really craving it, this is what I go for. I also can’t resist a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.”

SEAN BRASEL
Miami Beach restaurant
“Salted dark chocolate with almonds and a good bottle of red wine; I can live on that.”

BROOKE WILLIAMSON
The Tripel
“Donuts, shrimp chips, and a Jif peanut butter and bacon sandwich. And no, I’m not pregnant.”

DAVID BARZELAY
Lazy Bear
“McDonald’s, but it’s not even a guilty pleasure. It’s just a pleasure. They have spent millions and millions of research dollars ensuring that it is fucking delicious, and it is.”

RILEY HUDDLESTON
LondonHouse Chicago
“Cereal. Though, I grew up and began buying “gourmet” cereal or sometimes I’ll make my own sprouted mix with grass fed cow’s milk. If you put Fruity Pebbles with half and half in front of me, it’s on!”

MICHAEL HUNG
Viviane
“Fried chicken in almost any form. White Castles sliders.”

BRAD MILLER
Ox & Son
“Pizza all the way, but not just any pizza my friends. I have tried them all: Fancy Pizza, New York City and Chicago styles…all of them pale in comparison to a Frozen Supreme Tombstone Pizza. There is nothing better than popping one in the oven after a 16-hour shift or a rough night out on the town. WARNING: Both the 16-hour shift and the rough night out will lead to you waking up smelling smoke, and your delicious Tombstone has perished. But you will stand over it and contemplate for a minute about eating it.”

DANIEL SERFER
Mignonette
“Never feel guilty about it, KFC original recipe thighs. Even if I knew the Colonel’s secret I wouldn’t replicate it. Respect.”
