February 28, 2018
Chef Ralph Explains How Life Has Changed Since Kitchen Accident
In an exclusive with The Balancing Act, Chef Ralph Pagano sits down with co-hosts Olga Villaverde and Julie Moran to share how his life has changed since being severely injured in a kitchen explosion in Bimini last June.
Chef Ralph, whose Quick Bytes segments have been a vital component of The Balancing Act for several years, shares how his priorities have changed and the lessons he learned since the near-fatal explosion. Given a second chance at life, Ralph has found a new understanding of the importance of family, and is learning that he wants to fit his career into his life, rather than fitting his life into his career.
Chef Stuart O’Keeffe is back in The Balancing Act kitchen to offer a tantalizing taste of the Mediterranean, whipping up recipes with STAR olive oils and vinegars.
For our Broadway Balances America series, correspondent Amber Milt goes behind the scenes -- and actually makes a cameo in the show as one of the cell block girls!
Today on The Balancing Act, we go behind the scenes at Chicago The Musical and into the kitchen with Chef Stuart for some tantalizing Mediterranean recipes.
