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]
