Bryan Ramos, New Executive Chef of The Office, "I Had my So-Called Dream Job, but I Realized it Wasn't What I Wanted in Life"

While they sure know how to cook up a damned good meal, chefs tend to be an eclectic group with widely ranging talents and interests.

For example, newly appointed executive chef Bryan Ramos of the Office has also held the title Petroleum Geology Monitor.

We recently spoke to him about his hopes and dreams for the Office, his experience working on oil rigs out in the Gulf, and what it's like to come back to the kitchen after venturing out into another field.
