Zakarian on Zakarian

Zak attack.

Today Zagat runs a Q&A; with Lamb's Club chef and Next Iron Chef competitor Geoffrey Zakarian. When asked about straying from the rules for a challenge on a recent NIC episode, Zakarian responds, "I absolutely don’t follow rules ... Sometimes it’s better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission." It's maybe not exactly the tone to take given all that legal hullabaloo from last spring. [Zagat Buzz, Earlier]
