On the latest episode of Chef's Story, Dorothy Cann Hamilton sits and chats with critically acclaimed and international recognized chef Floyd Cardoz. Floyd is the Executive Chef/Partner of North End Grill and winner of the Top Chef Masters television show. Tune in and hear about his early days in New York at Tabla, a seminal Danny Meyer restaurant, and find out how he put aside his traditional life plans to become a world class chef. Learn about his vision of combining what he ate growing up in India with what is grown here in the United States. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
"As my mother always said, most people eat to live, I live to eat."
"I've always had the dream to mix Indian and Western foods since I began cooking...I wanted to adapt what we ate in India to what [ingredients] we have here [in the United States]."
"At Union Square Hospitality Group, we believe that your technical skills should form 49% of you are and 51% of who you are should be your niceness."
"As a chef you're always in control. You ask somebody to jump they say how high. When you're on TV that's not the case - you're at the mercy of producers."
