"I’ve learned about passion - not just to be excited about something, but to be completely dedicated, always curious, and truly connected to the cooking. I’ve learned about warmth…She has taught me about heart and how there is a place for the personal in cooking, for emotion in cooking. Without this heart, and this emotion, and this soul, I would still be riding the perfection wave, and only be about technique and mechanics. A brilliant dining experience needs more from a chef than textbook execution…I’ve never been so proud to have someone so proud of me.”
