What is your earliest food memory?
Tasting simple smoked salmon over cedar at an Indian village in Puget Sound. First time I discovered beautiful simplicity.
If you weren't a chef, what would you be?
If you could cook James Beard one dish, what would it be?
Describe your worst kitchen screw-up:
I once had to assemble a high end wedding cake out of grocery store cake because it was not communicated to us that we needed a cake. It wasn't necessarily a screw up, but it was not my finest hour.
