Top Chef Ed's Life After the Show

It was great fun talking to Ed Cotton, a finalist on Season 7 of "Top Chef", the other day. First, I have watched every season of Top Chef since it began. My boyfriend and I bet on who will win, at the beginning of the season. I often wonder what contestants do after the show - and how their lives and careers change - so I asked Ed about that when I interviewed him for SeafoodSource.com.
The pace of his life has changed significantly. While Ed is still executive chef at Plein Sud, the Manhattan French brassiere he was hired on at before the show started, he is being pulled in a lot of different directions. “There are a lot of opportunities, interviews, events, and people wanting to know if I can cook for them,” Ed said. He also talked about the difficulty of balancing a personal life with such a hectic schedule. However, if he had it to do all over again, he would. “It has been a long journey, and all the hard work is paying off. I signed up for it,” Ed said.
