**THERE IS A PART 2 TO THIS SHOW**
"TOP CHEF" FANS UNITE! This Sunday's "Art Of Living" I am happy to have Ilan Hall, winner of "TOP CHEF" season 2. He won over Marcel Vigneron, with his angula (eel) dish with green tomato caviar, pan seared moi, grilled squab and whole shrimp with lobster sauce, beef short rib with romesco, and balls of fresh fruit with a bay leaf fritter for dessert. While the flavors he used were nearly entirely Spanish, (his specialty), Ilan said all of the produce used was Hawaiian. He described the meal as "a reflection" of who he is.

As a teenager, Ilan worked at Marine Fishery, a seafood store in his hometown of Great Neck, Long Island, and was later trained at Italy's Lorenzo de Medici Apicus Program and at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). He attended the CIA at the same time as his Top Chef runner-up Marcel Vigneron. At the time of his season two Top Chef competition, Ilan was a line cook at Casa Mono, a Spanish restaurant in Manhattan. In the final competition of the program he stated that there was no preconceived notion in the preparation of his Spanish dishes.

As of 2008, Hall lives in Los Angeles, California
