Chefs that inspire:
Alison Roman, her style of cooking, use of color and her charisma.
Dan Barber, his love and knowledge of ingredients, farming and creating beautiful dishes with locally sourced foods. That’s what I strive to learn more of everyday.
Julia Child, for her shameless use of butter and cream, and humor of course.
My mother, Charlene, for always encouraging family time, every night over a home cooked meal (or pizza).
