Cooking and Life

I've always been known for bold flavors and rustic cooking, but there is another side to me. As you evolve as a cook, you understand life and how serious it is. There comes a point where there's got to be a better balance.

I never really thought of life and cooking in the same sentence. I wonder if the man has written a biography? I love to get inside peoples heads to see what makes them tick!
