"Having an audience helps a lot when you cook... When it's for more than one person, you can justify it."
"When the food media started to notice me and embrace me, that's when things changed for me. Up until this point, I was just this wacky and weird kid making food disasters in my kitchen!"
"Everyone I cooked with for the book, I wanted to learn something specific from them."
