Little things make big ripples in the world. I wouldn’t try to take on the universe, but I would cook delicious food that people would hopefully remember for the rest of their life. Cooking is my passion and I think great meals can do powerful things. It can take you back, put you in a good mood, or just plain feed someone. I’ve never made a lot of money in my cooking career but I still enjoy making food with my hands that people can appreciate. It’s art and chemistry, as well as timing with precision. It’s one of the few honest careers in my opinion. For example, there are many sales and politics (whatever) fueled by manipulation/deception. Food doesn’t lie, at least it shouldn’t. Basically, I would like to have a modest culinary business that creates enough income to live on where I don’t have to sell out and can make the best cuisine possible. I would strive to be consistent and bring people back. I could pay my bills, and they could leave with a full stomach and hopefully a little more optimism in their life. We all have daily battles, big and small. I’ll let the police catch the bad guys, in the mean time – I’ll be making their lunch.
