F&W Classic in Aspen 2015: A Great Story About Dedication
Read the transcript of this video
Guys, so much of what we do is about passion.
There's a lot of things we can teach as chefs.
We can teach technique. We can teach food technology. We
can teach terminology. We can teach understanding how to cut
an ingredient. But we can't teach passion. We can't teach
dedication. And that's something that's inside, and this young chef
has that. And Michael told me a story [INAUDIBLE] and
I was expecting someone to tell me that she burned
something for some party. Or something horrible like screwed up
some service, so she was like there was one night
in service I guess they were really busy, and May
goes chef I have something personal going on can I
leave early tonight, and he's like I need you here
can you stay to the end of service You know,
we really need you to stay, can you stay? She's
like, yes chef, yes chef. Turns out, after the service,
she stayed, everything's fine. The next day he finds out
that her apartment, her house was on fire. It burned
down, she lost everything, but she stayed for service. That's
dedication. [APPLAUSE] [LAUGH] I got goosebumps just telling that story.
I know, it's true, it happens. That's crazy. Yeah. What's
wrong with you? [LAUGH] **** happens. Yeah. [LAUGH]
