Think like a child with the eyes of a chef


Not formally trained; not bound by tradition


My most earnest self-expression is done through food


As calculated as I am uncouth; as headstrong as I am brilliant


A dish is nothing without someone to experience it


My passion is my pride; my passion is my job
