Stop. Drop. And Roll. Words that save the life of a Florida chef in his own kitchen. We’ve seen Chef Ralph Pagano on shows like “Iron Chef” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” The south Florida Chef was at his new restaurant in Miami, the Naked Taco. when he was severely burned in a gas explosion in the kitchen. Chef Pagano is in the hospital with third-degree burns and will have surgery to repair those burns. You may have checked out his other restaurants in South Florida like Naked Lunch in Miami and Naked Crab in Fort Lauderdale. Best wishes for a speedy recover for Chef Pagano.
