Ash Fulk, a 29-year-old contestant on Season 6 of the Bravo tv series Top Chef, currently serves as the Sous Chef at Trestle on Tenth in New York City. A self-taught chef, he began his cooking career in Oakland, California and quickly realized he was a natural in the kitchen. He enjoys working with foods that are regional and seasonal and follows the motto "if it grows together, it goes together." Ash loves cooking with leeks and making custards, and some of his favorite chefs include Dan Barber and Claudia Fleming. His favorite simple summer recipe is Grilled Corn on the Cob with Mayonnaise, with a sweet tea to wash it down.
