This Is TASTE 243: Courtney Storer

The Bear. We all love The Bear, the hit restaurant drama from FX that begins its second season on June 22. And we love The Bear for good reason. The show was the talk of TV and one of the most realistic portrayals of restaurant life on TV. Courtney Storer is a Los Angeles–based chef who works as the show’s culinary producer. That means she’s behind its hyperrealistic (now legendary) cooking scenes. On today’s episode, we talk about how Courtney gets the cast ready to cook. We also dive into the important—and tricky—topic of what makes a great chef.
