The Secret Lives of Chefs

chef-jett.jpgChef Junnajet "Jett" Hurapan of Blu Restaurant & Lounge in Sugar Land, apart from having the coolest name in the industry, also has a piece of personal history that has nothing to do with the kitchen. After going to culinary school and working for 12 years as a corporate executive chef, Hurapan told interviewer Mai Pham that he took a two year hiatus to become a race car driver where he "took out as many cars" as he could to help his teammate cross the finish line first. So why is he back in the kitchen? "Too many crashes." [EOW]
