Adam Gertler, who lists improvisational theater as one of his passions, hasn't been aggressive about cooking since the restaurant he owned closed a year ago. "I'm here to make amends for that," he says. "I need to get back in the ring and show that I'm still passionate about cooking." His assistant, 8-year-old Shanasia, helps him with a BBQ Chicken Packed Pita.
