Former Uchi culinary director Philip Speer received his fourth DWI earlier this year. The arrest led to 10 days in jail, seven years of probation and the end of the lauded chefs’s career at Uchi. In a new video on, a slim and healthy looking Speer bravely discusses his battles with alcohol, the stresses of the culinary world, and the collateral damage of his drinking. Speer takes accountability, his new goals and the healthy place he is in his life. (Warning: There is some NSFW language, but very little.)
