I researched a couple of the Chefs(I knew of Julia, and James though I didn't know he had passed, because his name is still so prominent), and came to the conclusion that barring how bilingual I would have to be, Ferran Adrin, is the one I would love to spend the day with. Again, going back to the point of me proving my worth in the industry, I've never made a meal that anyone left from in disgust, for me to please his pallet would be an honor.

The first food I came to love that I didn't previously like befor was the onion, in its raw form. I remember working for the fast food chain Rally's, when that experience changed my very being. It's not like I would turn my nose up to people who would eat them, at this point I had put them on
