If you want to get some tips of your own, here's the best approach for getting an answer from a chef:

  • Make sure that chef is active on Twitter — and doesn't just tweet promotional stuff.
  • Be a fan. Favorite or retweet any of that chef's tweets you found especially helpful.
  • Tweet when the chef is on Twitter. Take a look at the chef's Twitter stream, and see if they tend to be on at certain times of the day or days of the week.
  • To address that chef, use their handle within your tweet, but not as the first word. We know this is Twitter 101, but just in case you didn't know...
  • If you have a follow-up question about something the chef already tweeted, use the reply function so it stays within the thread.
  • Don't stalk or harass the chef. Sometimes people are busy, or they overlook a question. Be patient, and try again after a while.
  • Make sure you're not asking a question the chef has already answered.
  • Say "thank you" if the chef does answer your question!
