"Who doesn't love food? I love the creativity being an Executive Chef allows. But it is hard work and not for everyone."
"I love the fast pace and the action of being a Chef. I love being able to be creative and put something new and exciting on the table. I love to make someones' experience enjoyable by being able to provide an appealing dish in both appearance and taste. I love being in charge in a way to direct others in a way that they can learn from me. That is the great joy for me in food service. No matter one's experience or schooling level, there is always the opportunity to learn something new from anyone you come in contact with."
