"Chef" is Gender Neutral
Play • 1 hr 7 min

We take a BIG bite out of BRUNCH with Catie Randazzo, a nonbinary chef from Columbus, Ohio who showed off their “filthy biscuits” as a cheftestant on HBOMax’s The Big Brunch—a wholesome cooking competition where the winner gets support with their big food dream. We chat about Catie’s vision for connecting trans youth to food & service industry skills, their queer & culinary come-ups in fast food kitchens, and some of their favorite moments on The Big Brunch.
