Zagat posted a story this morning on overachieving chefs, and our very own Tech School columnist Cassy Vires made the leading restaurant guide’s nationwide list.

Vires, chef/co-owner of Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood, is included in the article, 8 Chefs With Hidden Talents, for her contributions to FEAST. She's highlighted among the likes of Rick Bayless (featured for his on-the-side salsa dancing) and Tom Colicchio (also a great guitar player).

Through her monthly step-by-step Tech School recipes and accompanying how-to videos, Vires helps at-home cooks achieve restaurant-style results by deconstructing seemingly difficult techniques. This isn't the first time she's received national attention for the column, as her efforts behind it landed her a James Beard Award nomination last year.
