Jamie Bissonnette is a fan of nose-to-tail cooking, as well as nose-to-tail tattoos. Chef at Boston's Coppa Enoteca and Toro, Bissonnette straddles many worlds—or, cities, to be more specific. A born-and-raised New Englander who made his name in Boston, he now has a Manhattan branch of Toro. He's an established culinary star (he won a James Beard award for Best Chef: Northeast), his twitter and bio reads "eat offal, listen to hardcore, dance hard or die," but he hasn't been all-offal his entire life. In fact, he was a straight-edge vegan in his youth; when we learned this, we knew that we had to know more about the compelling chef. So, we sat down with "Biss" and got the skinny on his differing identities, his dream to cook a meal for his imaginary friend, and his real thoughts on pork belly.
