Chef Ron Hsu - Lazy Betty

Chef Ron Hsu comes from a family with deep culinary history. His mother and grandmother instilled the familiarity of good food (and being a good eater) in him at an early age — which was a boon to his future, now career, as a chef.

He spent the early parts of career learning the ropes working positions in kitchens throughout Atlanta and then moving to NYC for almost 10 years working under Chef Eric Ripert at Le Bernardin — in multiple positions and in multiple cities throughout his restaurant business. Now, coming back to Atlanta, he is opening his own restaurant in Candler Park under the clever monicker of Lazy Betty.

Chef and I sat down at Proof Bakeshop for a conversation about his upbringing, his career, time spent on the cooking competition show The Final Table and how they are bringing Candler Park its first restaurant with a tasting menu.

Enjoy.
