How exciting!!!…I am always out and about traveling, cooking, and blogging!!!! Recently I just wrapped up a whirl-wind excursion from Los Angeles, to Chicago, and then to New York City. For all the juicy details check out the blog page.
As you may have heard, I am on currently on FOX’s hit show MasterChef. The major lesson I took away from this incredible journey, is that my passion for cooking is really all consuming… there is so much I still need to learn, and I want it… I want it all!!! What better way to grow as a cook, than to get into the kitchens of some of the best Executive Chefs. So off I headed to stage (apprentice). For some of these chefs, it took some convincing. My equation: Begging+Persistence=Mission Accomplished/Stage Opportunity… (ok, I was also lucky enough to have some phenomenal connections!) the first adventure began at Patina in Los Angeles (check it out http://www.patinagroup.com) ….then it was onto Graham Elliott in Chicago (http://www.grahamelliot.com/) , and lastly Del Posto in NYC (http://www.delposto.com/home.htm) ….all Michelin Star restaurants with a long list of accolades to trail….it was a nerve-racking, eye-opening, life-changing experience to say the least.
Now that this has wrapped up, I am onto planning the next adventure ….stayed tuned….in the meantime I will be sharing mini-adventures on the road as well as recipes and everyday thoughts. Some posts may be cheery, some may have a bit more grit. Overall, I truly believe the best is yet to come….
