PX This reports that Hosea’s cuddle buddy Leah Cohen will leave Centro Vinoteca, where she’s executive chef, to pursue short-term opportunities in Spain, Italy, and Asia. Cohen says, “I am very thankful for the opportunities that Sasha Muniak and his team have given me, but I do feel that now is an opportune moment to travel and study and continue to develop myself into a more well rounded chef.” Centro owner Sasha Muniak feels good about handing over the reigns to current sous-chef Richard Furey: “Leah Cohen was very much in demand after her appearance on Top Chef. The team very capably handled her absence while she was called away to represent Centro Vinoteca in both off-site events and TV appearances. I am confident Richard and the team will competently live up to their new challenge.”
