“We don’t do desserts for ourselves, or even for one particular audience, but it’s for everyone.” [5:54]

“The thing that I learned the most, was to not have any preconceived idea of a technique or how to cook something, just cook with love, use the best ingredients, and it’s all going to be good.” [8:15]
