If Graham Elliot weren't a chef, what would he do?
Politics. I'm going to cook for as long as I need to — to financially sustain myself — and then go into politics. I can't stand Congress. It just kills me. I follow politics the way people follow sports. I'm watching four channels at once and seeing not just who's trying to push legislation, but the chess moves of "we're blocking this to do this." It's just so bad. With food, you create a vision and then you get your team to follow it and the guests buy into it. If I could do the same thing with politics, it would be like trying to give back somehow. It's not ego driven. It'd be really fun to go and shake stuff up.
