Late last night, Mike Hiller posted on EscapeHatchDallas that Josh Valentine, pastry chef at FT33 and John Tesar’s archenemy on Top Chef: Seattle, has left Dallas to go back to Oklahoma. (This news comes soon after FT33 announced its chef de cuisine’s departure for NYC.) Hiller wasn’t able to get McCallister or Valentine to confirm this fact, but a kind PR woman for FT33 has told me that it’s true. Valentine is gone. Let’s hope he’s off to bigger and better opportunities.
