Stealth Lawyer: Forager for Restaurant Daniel

Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Ex-lawyer Tama Matsuoka Wong has a rather unusual job: she's the official forager for Daniel, the New York City restaurant of acclaimed chef Daniel Boulud. The former in-house counsel for Merrill Lynch had been gathering foodstuffs in the wild for some time when she first ate at the restaurant.

Her holiday tip: pine needles can be delicious. (Source: Bloomberg)
