"New York is the center of the food world. It's extremely hard and challenging. You can literally make it anywhere after New York."
"My favorite dish to prepare is chicken pot pie. It would also be my last meal. Beside being delicious it combines so many different techniques (baking, sauce making, roasting etc) in one dish."
"I love the Union Square market on a spring morning. It's an amazing place, with incredible product I would put up against anywhere else in the country."
