Mark Zuckerberg lured a talented chef from Google by offering him the respect he'd been denied. Yet look at the frat-house fare the Facebook CEO has him cooking.
Oh sure, we'd kill for the most of the food "Culinary Overlord" Josef Desimone is serving up over at Facebook. According to a video by Forbes.com's Taylor Buley, the chef prepares an ever changing tasting menu of treats for the social network's coddled employees. He'll even build a meal around a staffer's favorite dish from childhood. Desimone is motivated by the esteem in which he's held at Facebook; he tells Forbes he was treated like "the help" at Facebook's archrival Google.
Facebook's respect for the chef is reciprocated. In addition to healthy, antibiotic-free foods, Desimone says he also prepares for Zuckerberg one of the CEO's favorites: Bacon wrapped hot dogs. If Facebook's willing to reveal that disturbing culinary preference, it must really be serious about trying to distract people from forthcoming Facebook flick The Social Network.
