Chef Graham Elliot & Allie Bowles
"MasterChef" chef and judge Graham Elliot and his wife Allie Bowles are here today to share the heartwarming story of their 3.5-year-old son Conrad, who was born with a bilateral cleft lip. They learned of the diagnosis even before he was born and were fortunate enough to afford the appropriate medical care. But, the process made them realize not all families are quite as fortunate, inspiring them to become involved with Smile Train. On April 2, the organization is excited to reach the milestone of one million surgeries. Later, Graham tells us about his remarkable weight loss and walks us through his apple tart recipe.
