Home Featured Chefs Featured Chef: Stephen K. Eldridge of Pink Pony - Page 5

AFM: What are two items on the Pink Pony menu that we must order and why?

SE: Fried chicken (where else are you going to get smoked fried chicken served with Tepary bean mash and a mole)? I would say the pork chop because I love that dish personally but it will change very soon. The Blue Burger is another one. It just eats so damn well!

AFM: What do you love most about your job?

SE: Lots of things really. I get to work with the best event planner on the planet, I love the men I work for and I just love what I do. So I guess I win!

AFM: If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be and why?

SE: Somewhere where there are seasons. I mean a real winter that turns white, a fall that changes colors so vividly, a spring that you see people return to reading on the stoop and a summer that doesn’t burn you. Maybe Buffalo.


AFM: What's the best advice you ever received?

SE: “Never believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.” - my dad

            “Work smart and hard.” – some random person I worked with

            “Eat that!” – me

            “Do yoga” – from a former chef who I worked for
