You might ask yourself how Chef Geoff, of all of D.C.’s talented toques, got some face time  yesterday on The Today Show. The answer comes several minutes into this clip: The chef’s wife, Norah O’Donnell, is his Peacock Network connection. She’s chief Washington correspondent for MSNBC.

Nepotism aside, Chef Geoff (aka Geoff Tracy) got a nice lick in when Matt Lauer tried to take over the tongs. “Yeah, I didn’t grab the microphone from you.” He also added a dig at the wife, “She doesn’t cook. She doesn’t clean. It’s a good deal.”

I think he was joking. Or aiming for punishment from The Sexist.
