Justin Sutherland keeps moving after Top Chef, Iron Chef and accident


Kristine M. Kierzek

As a chef and restaurateur, Justin Sutherland is constantly on the go. Known as a competitor on season 16 of “Top Chef” and a winner of “Iron Chef America,” he was working toward the release of his first cookbook and appearances on Food Network this fall.

Everything came to a screeching halt in July, when the Minnesota native fell off a boat and was injured by a propeller. The major accident forced him to slow down. He spent most of the summer recovering, and while still healing he’s ready to be out and about again.

In addition to a cookbook launch and television roles, this summer he opened a new breakfast sandwich restaurant, The Big E, in Portland, Oregon, and plans to expand that concept to other regions later this year.
