A few years ago, we learned about and interviewed Mogan Anthony, Executive Chef at Village Social in Mt. Kisco, after his appearance on Chopped. Learning about him and his style of cooking prompted us to pay a visit to his restaurant, where we had a delicious meal! Chef Mogan was named one of this year’s “Innovative Chefs” by Serendipity Magazine, one of the many reasons why we’re excited to attend Greenwich Wine & Food in a few weeks!
FP: What are some of your guilty pleasures? We call them foodie pleasures, hence the name of our blog. 😉
MA: Simply chocolates & ice cream , thats why I try to stay away from these evils.
FP: We like the way you think! If you could get on a plane tomorrow and visit any place just for its food, where would it be?
MA: I would travel to Italy or France for inspiration.
FP: Outside of being a chef, what are some of your interests and hobbies?
MA: I love traveling and eating around. I love Cross Fit and their work-out style. My hobbies include watching a good movie but I’m not sure if it qualifies as a hobby.
FP: Can’t beat a good meal and watching a movie! What is the one item in the kitchen that you can’t do without?
MA: Konbu sheet, this is umami bomb that I use from making a stock to curing fish.
FP: Interesting! We’ll have to learn more about that. What three words would your friends and family use to describe you?
MA: Reliable, funny enough and creative.
FP: “Funny enough” is pretty funny itself! Thank you for your time. We look forward to seeing you at Greenwich Wine & Food in a few weeks!
