I cook for many reasons. I cook because I love to eat and I love to feed people. I cook because I need to eat and because I need to earn a living. I cook for the creative fulfillment it gives me and because I love the adrenaline rush I get at show time. Sometimes I cook breakfast at home just for myself, and then I’ll go to work and cook dinner for hundreds of people. But whether I’m cooking at the restaurant or cooking at home for my family and friends, I get as much pleasure from the process as I do the result.
