Not much more than an interview

I did enjoy listening to the stories by the group but I felt like I could have seen the this on PBS.

Three Seasoned and vetted chefs being asked what it takes to be a chef

If your interested in being a chef , this will answer questions you might have thought needed to be answered. It will also give you insight into restaurants , and what it takes to be successful . This will not teach you step by step rules to success as a chef. It won’t say study French, Italian, vegan, ect first before moving onto xyz. It will explain what seasoned professionals expect in a chef and someone who wants to be apart of the industry.

Such a loss, as we have just passed the first anniversary of Anthony's death. What a great sit down and talk about the "life".
