i think it was genetics. my great aunts and uncle owned inns in watch hill,r.i. and i grew up with my mom teaching me all that she had learned working in the kitchens when she was younger. that and i craved a steadier paycheck than waiting tables or bartending. oh, and i was told that girls don't belong in kitchens - i just had to go for it after that challenge!!:)

I was starving and there was no one around to make anything for me! It was fend for myself or starve. Been starving ever since!:eek: :D

It was a girlfriend who told me I needed a job, and who pushed me into boston's first breuer chair and hanging fern restaurant, where I watched the only genius I've ever met who inspired me to put on the toque.

I wanted to learn to cook while i was at school,but was told this was possible.Cookery lessons were only available to female pupils. This really p*&%^ed me off!!
I decided there and then that i would learn to cook when i left school.
Now,i know how enjoyable cooking can be as well as the level of dedication that is required to be a chef.
There are two key points:
1) people whoever/wherever they are will always need to eat.
2) being able to cook is one thing,being able to cook to a high standard is another. Leo.:chef:
