Chef John Tesar headed to Brazil to cook Picanha for 2000 people this weekend
Chef John Tesar is taking a break from cooking, opening restaurants, filming a reality TV and his celebrity chef thing this week. Well, maybe not celebrity chef thing.
This weekend, Tesar is an invited guest chef at an annual grilling-and-chilling food festival in Brazil called Churrascada. Tesar won’t be lounging, though; he’ll be cooking picanha, the Brazilian grilled and skewered steak specialty, for nearly 2000 people.
Why include a Texas steakhouse chef as one of the 10 chefs at a Brazilian cook-out?
“They wanted a great steak,” Tesar told me.
