More on the Sam Kass beat

The New York Times checks in with Sam Kass, White House assistant chef, Obama administration “food initiative coordinator,” and onetime Hull-House soup maven.

Frankly, I am in awe of this man. Did I mention that he’s 29? Twenty-freakin’-nine??

Former WH chef Walter Scheib, however, remains unimpressed:

[A]fter reading yet another mention of the young chef’s physique, Mr. Scheib warned that the buzz was a bit overblown. (People magazine called Mr. Kass one of “Barack’s Beauties” in its list of 100 Most Beautiful people this year.) “Let’s remember: the guy’s a cook,” Mr. Scheib said. “There are people who are much more qualified to talk about nutrition than cooks. At the end of the day, we make food; we’re not geniuses.”
