About Craig Wallen

Craig Wallen is the chef for Le Zoo. He enjoyed watching cooking shows while his friends were busy with cartoons. He couldn't have imagined that his entertainment of choice—watching chefs like Julia Child and Martin Yan sauté, braise, and chop on TV—would have such an impact on the rest of his life.
