In the latest Around Town column, read news about Stanford alumnus Andrew Luck’s plans to pursue a master’s degree at his alma mater this fall and a Palo Alto restauranteur who recently won $10,000 on a Food Network show.
BIG MAN BACK ON CAMPUS … A decade after graduating from Stanford University, alumnus Andrew Luck is preparing to return to campus in the fall — this time as a graduate student.
The former NFL quarterback played seven seasons with the Indianapolis Colts before retiring in 2019. He decided to leave the game at age 29 due to an “unrelenting” cycle of undergoing injuries, pain and rehabilitation, which left him feeling “stuck,” he said during a press conference at the time.
Luck’s pursuit for an advanced degree was revealed by Stanford football coach David Shaw during an Aug. 29 interview on The Rich Eisen Show. “He’s very content on his NFL career. Not fired up about how it ended, but it did end,” Shaw said of Luck. “He did a lot of great things and brought a lot of joy to the people of Indianapolis and now for him it’s time for chapter two.”

Shaw also noted that Luck, who turns 33 later this month, recently had his second child with his wife, Nicole, who also graduated from Stanford in 2012.

The Stanford Daily reported that Luck is pursuing a master’s degree in Education, according to Stanford Profiles, which doesn’t indicate whether he’ll be part of the university’s football team.

A TASTY VICTORY … An email to Zola and BarZola chef and owner Guillaume Bienaime contained an offer he couldn’t refuse — a chance to compete against chef and Food Network personality Alex Guarnaschelli and two other contestants on Guarnaschelli’s show “Alex vs. America.”
Months after a 12-hour day of filming in Los Angeles, the episode aired on Aug. 21 and Bienaime could finally share the big news with his Palo Alto restaurant’s patrons: He had beaten Guarnaschelli and the other contestants to win $10,000, which he donated to chef Jose Andres‘ nonprofit World Central Kitchen.
“Alex vs. America” pits Guarnaschelli against three contestants from around the country who are experts in a particular cuisine. The contestants start off in the “survival round” picking between different factors they must account for, such as how much time they’re given to cook and what type of meat they can use. Their food and Guarnaschelli’s is then judged blindly by two anonymous judges, who select the best dish of the round.
If Guarnaschelli loses the round, the contestant with the best dish gets to pick the cooking factors again in the “money round,” where the remaining two contestants can win up to $10,000 for beating Guarnaschelli. If she wins the first round, she has control over the cooking factors for the second and final round.
Bienaimé’s episode was focused on French cuisine, where Guarnaschelli’s training is focused. He knew French food was her specialty but said he had prepared to win.
