Backstage at the Egyptian: Interview with Chef Patrick

Interview conducted by: Sydney Johnson – Egyptian Theatre Intern

We are so excited to welcome Chefs: A Sizzling Kitchen Showdown THIS SATURDAY at 8:00p.m. This is going to be an unforgettable show that you won’t want to miss! I had the pleasure of interviewing the talented Chef Patrick this week, and you can read the hilarious interview below.

SYDNEY: What is your favorite recipe?

PATRICK: I have a new favorite every day. Today, I’m alternating between my special 2 week, 64 ingredient mole, and my classic 7 layer liquid nitrogen Pavlova.

SYDNEY: What is it about this event that makes for a fun night out?

PATRICK: Beyond the simple draw of handsome strippers and delicious recipes, one factor that makes the evening so exciting is unpredictability. The audience will pick ingredients and challenges, they’ll get to interact with the chefs on stage, they’ll pick winners, and they might even get to help our chefs undress. Nobody – including me – really knows what’s going to happen.

SYDNEY: What do you do to prepare before a show?

PATRICK: I like to loosen up and focus with an espresso and a routine of nude hot yoga and ambidextrous julienning.

SYDNEY: What do you like most about performing?

PATRICK: Well, I’ve been a performer one way or another my whole life, so I love attention, I love entertaining. There’s no more gratifying feeling than when an audience of thousands is hanging on your every word to see what happens next. I have the power to keep them in suspense, to titillate them, to gratify them, and in truth I love giving people a spectacle they’re going to remember.

SYDNEY: What can the audience expect when attending this show?

PATRICK: Expect sensual and sensuous entertainment, expect to have many senses tickled, expect beautiful men and sumptuous cuisine, expect to participate, expect the unexpected.
