Eric Ripert Is the Most Interesting Man in the World, Part II
In episode two of Avec Eric, "Star Ingredients," Eric Ripert lends further credence to our hypothesis from our review of episode one that he is, in fact, the most interesting man in the world. Ripert is seen at the cliffs on the Pacific at Los Gatos, California, walking right by a sign that reads "SHEER CLIFF STAY BACK." Clearly disregarding the danger, what does he do? He climbs down the cliffs (!) to meet David Kinch, chef/owner of Manresa in Los Gatos, who's surfing in the ocean (an interesting man in his own right). During the intro, there's also a quick shot of Ripert on the beach smoking a cigar. Eric Ripert does not fear danger; he faces it head on.
