The Top Chef Experience
Question: Any suggestions on how TC hopefuls can get noticed during an open call?
Stephanie Izard: Have a BIG personality! I never did open call but they definitely want some fun people!
Question: Hi Stephanie! Loved your season of Top Chef! How exactly did the prize money from your win help you segue to the next step in your career?
Stephanie Izard: The money did not do much (opening a place takes a bit of $), but it helped opened doors to investors and other opportunities.

Question: Hi Stephanie! Was just wondering if you keep in touch with any of the other chefs from Season 4 on Top Chef?
Stephanie Izard: Yup! I talk to Antonia the most out of anyone; we became really good friends while filming. I have been friends with Dale for years so we talk here and there and always will. Other than that, I cross paths with the rest of the chefs often at events. But when we get together, it is always a party.
