I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing editorial portraits of Minneapolis Chef Remy Pettus of Bardo restaurant for the intro bio of his appearance on the Food Networks Beat Bobby Flay, “You Made Your Bread Now Eat It” that recently aired in season 27. Check out the full episode through this link to see how he did!
