[MUSIC}. You know I cook my food urban western cuisine, I like to take any ingredient that's west of the Mississippi, same time my cuisine is all about the ethnic groups that settled the West so Chinese railroad workers, Spanish, the French, all the people that settled Texas and that's really where my inspiration comes from. I like to push people to tell me stories because I can relate food to that all the time, that's what I do. All it takes is one click and I can see it happen in people's faces when they go, well you know there was this one time. So when we travelled in Italy there's a real ground in this [UNKNOWN] from, sort of having Italian blood. And then the food is just so fantastic. We spent a great time up there And we found a restaurant in [CROSSTALK] yeah called [UNKNOWN] with the langostines. When he started talking about that I started really listening in and now all of a sudden we're about to have a conversation that really makes a difference. And he says yeah, we're sitting there, it's outside, the temperature's perfect. He's sitting down and they have these langostines that are They're sort of grilled and they're sort of flash fried in olive oil and some butter. Bingo. That's exactly what I've been waiting for you to tell me. I can do that. You know these we just get the whole [UNKNOWN] in, we split them, clean them, we're gonna quickly grill them on the blanja over here and it is the sweetest of the sweet. Food is not a serious thing. It's not this thing you put way up on a pedestal to me. It's all about people wanting to have things that they like. And so as a chef, you venture out to do things that make people get excited about what you're doing. And that adventure for me is what I love about cooking. [MUSIC]
