“Things have changed. The Kitchen Life isn’t what it was 8 years ago. It’s changed – evolved. I think that drugs aren’t as much of a necessity to our industry as they once were. It’s always been bullshit – an excuse. If you start working in this industry with your own wellbeing in mind and remembering to take care of yourself, than you will choose the right choices.

Keeping up with your chef isn’t worth losing track of yourself. In the end it’s about the energy you hold and transmit to your team. Your choices will dictate what becomes of you. Will you last long enough to leave a legacy, or will you burn out?”
