What is your favorite food memory?
One of my favorite food memories is when I made Family Meal at The Pineapple Room. A former chef tried what I made and he was going to critique what I made, but he couldn’t put the fork down long enough to tell me how I could have improved the dish..
What is the most important quality or character trait for a cook to have?
Have integrity. People want to know that they can count on you to do your job, and that you’re going to do it right.
No one knows everything, so don’t act like you do. Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% what you do about it.
