Meet the chefs who worked their way up from dishwasher to boss in some of LA's top kitchens. Manny Diaz started washing dishes after he crossed the border in 1981, now he's in charge of the kitchen at Pacific Grille downtown; Suzanne Goin brought Rodulfo Aguado over to Lucques from Campanile, now he's sous chef; Salvadoran Rene Mata has been with Wolfgang Puck since the 80s, now he's exec chef at Chinois on Main.
