Q. What is your favorite meal?
The meal isn’t as important as who you are dining with and the connection you have.

This fruit in Peru with a hard shell and a gloppy mess of seeds and mucous-like stuff inside.
Q. What do you consider to be the most overrated foodservice trend?
Supersizing has been awful.

Practice integrity, support the people in your life, take time to enjoy special moments, don’t live with regrets.

Bobby Flay. He’s kinda cocky, like me.
Travel: Rome is it, or maybe a Nile cruise?
My father. He passed away in 2000.
Italy, with a handsome Italian tour guide, and fine Italian food and wine.
I’m not sure I’d go back in time. It’s all about the future, baby!
