When New Times received a press release from Mont's indicating celebrity chef Beau MacMillan would be participating in Monti's La Casa Vieja's “Culinary Masters” guest chef series we couldn't help wondering what the hell? This is Beau MacMillan we're talking about. The same Beau MacMillan that has reigned supreme among a pantheon of culinary greats when he beat Iron Chef Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America. The same Beau MacMillan that hosted Worst Cooks In America on Food Network. What possible reason could Elements' executive chef have for moonlighting at an arguably passable steakhouse in Tempe? As it turns out, he was there to cook one hell of a meal.
