This week’s Badass Chick is Stacy Cogswell, the executive chef at Brookline’s Regal Beagle who is competing on Top Chef this season.
Growing up, Stacy had always loved to eat and, as far back as she can remember, she knew she wanted to work in a kitchen. So, in high school Stacy took a job at a local pizza place to get herself started. She then studied the culinary arts in college and spent time traveling the world to discover local cuisines.
While she was in school full time, she got her first full-time job as a line cook at Bouchee on Newbury Street. Stacy continued to follow her passion and worked at multiple restaurants in Boston until she landed the executive chef position at the Regal Beagle in Brookline. Soon thereafter, she was tapped by Bravo producers to be a contestant on Top Chef.
Stacy is a total badass for following her passion and finding a way to make a living out of doing what she loves! Best of luck to Stacy this season – you can catch her starting this Wednesday night on Bravo at 10p!
