News has it that cookbook author and TV chef Tom Colicchio of the Craft empire saved New York Times food writer and cookbook author Joan Nathan’s life last night.

According to a local blog, the DCist, “The big save happened at a benefit for D.C. Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table, where luminaries of the food world milled about and showed off their skills.” Colicchio employed the Heimlich Maneuver, which apparently really works.

My favorite Tom Colicchio cookbook is Think Like a Chef.
