Vic & Anthony's concept chef Carlos Rodriguez was flown in from Houston on Monday night to cook for what he called "the highest profile VIP of my career."

Former President Bill Clinton was in town for an event at the Golden Nugget, and Rodriguez teased on Twitter, "20 year steakhouse veteran hand picked to cook a vegan meal."

Rodriguez tweeted a photo of "vegan gourmet" mozzarella cheese, saying, "'Vegan and gourmet'....'what are 2 words that don't go together, Alex?' #chefjeopardy."

Rodriguez says he used no fake meat in the meal, making gnocchi for entree, a kale and quinoa salad, "and some easy treats to start. I dig the challenge."

One fan tweet, "you love the pressure and we all know it. kill it, chef! (pun intended)," to which Rodriguez replied, "shhhh, don't say "kill". I could get in a lot of trouble...... #vaguetweet."
