Whatever Happened to ... Reed Hearon?
Then, after some post-dot-com-bust business setbacks in 2002, he dropped from public view. In the intervening years, the question, "whatever happened to Reed Hearon?" has come up regularly on foodie Web sites, but always goes unanswered. Well, I finally tracked him down: he's been working as the executive chef of the Mammoth Mountain ski resort. The Inyo Register recently reported on his participation in an event promoting the use of locally-produced beef.
