Actually, you know, one of my epic calamities was when I was fortunate enough to be a Food and Wine Chef in 1998. And I did a dessert, which seemed like an easy thing to do, but maybe wasn't such a wise move baking in Aspen. When I really wasn't a 100% sure what else to do to the food. We got through it. It took a little longer than we hoped. But when you're a young chef and all of a sudden you're making a dish for some of the chefs that you'd admire your whole life, and you're waiting for a lavender biscuit to rise, it was a little frightening. [LAUGH] A little more frightening than I wanted it to be.
