One of the most rewarding aspects of being a chef is the opportunities we get to create seemingly unique or new experiences for the guests that we serve. In this aspect of the job, the creative process is a key and vital component. I wanted to take some time to share a few points from what I have learned through the creative process, not just in the kitchen, but in many areas of my life. Hopefully, at the very least, it verifies or challenges what you think about creativity.

Or maybe my ego can’t face the thought of someone in my kitchen can actually be better than me at something."
