Gail Simmons Reveals Her Favorite City To Film Top Chef

It's hard to believe Gail Simmons, the kindly and encouraging chef on Top Chef, has waited this long to publish her first cookbook. Called Bringing it Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating, Simmons' cookbook is more a recipe scrapbook, collected from her adventures traveling the world as a food writer, consultant, and television personality. Simmons visited The Takeout headquarters in Chicago to talk about her new book, and her favorite city in 15 seasons of filming Top Chef.
