Chef Burning Questions: Jason Maddy of Oak on Chili Cheese Tater Tots and Club Sandwiches

Each week (or thereabout) we ask a local chef three burning questions about their favorite culinary reads, food shames and best (or worst) meals. Today we chat with Jason Maddy, the executive chef at Oak who actually has a question for you. What are three of your favorite cookbooks? Aquavit, Marcus Samuelsson The Complete Robuchon, Joel Robuchon The Family Meal, Ferran Adria

What are a few of your latest food shames? The new Sonic hot dogs and chili cheese tots. So bad. So good.

What are the greatest and worst things you've eaten recently? Greatest: The skate dish at Spoon and South American beef heart pate at Joyce & Gigi's. Worst: Most club sandwiches, they're my fave. I'm picky, please send suggestions.
