Cristeta Comerford

Cristeta Comerford is another great example of the American Dream, moving from the Philippines to the United States at just 23. Walter Scheib, the executive chef during the Clinton White House, recruited her to be a chef, and in 2005, when Scheib left, Comerford became the first female executive chef of the White House, a position she has held during both the Bush and Obama administrations.

In the beginning of this year, Comerford partnered with Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America and beat Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali.
