Act Two, Scene One: This is Chef Pichet Ong

He’s a “chef in transit,” a “food consultant, coolhunter, recipe & concept developer, lifestyle journalist,” it reads in his Instagram bio. He elaborates on Twitter: “food pimp, author, indie, baker, butcher, spelling bee, mama’s boy, geek, original hipster, mr fix it, songwriter, occasional tv star.” What’s missing? Oh yeah, his architectural design degree. These disparate interests all inspire and inform his passion for baking. His New York City restaurant and bakery (P*ONG and Batch) closed in 2009 and since then he’s picked up consulting gigs, as well as a guest appearance as a judge on Top Chef: Just Desserts in 2011. If that was the conclusion of “Act One” of chef Pichet Ong’s story, his second act is just getting started. We caught up with the chef recently to see what he’s been up to and what his next plans are.
