At an inaugural benefit  for D.C. Central Kitchen , Tom Colicchio  went from being a top chef to a real-life hero.
According to eye witness  Ezra Klein, Joan Nathan , the award-winning cookbook author of Jewish Cooking in America  and hostess of the event, began to choke on a piece of chicken. Colicchio happened to be nearby and when Alice Waters  shouted, "Does anyone know the Heimlich maneuver?" he was able to perform the life-saving technique on Nathan.
Nathan was lucky to have such a strong, quick-thinking chef nearby. After hearing this news, do you consider Colicchio a hero? Does it make you want to learn the Heimlich maneuver?
