What’s your go-to guilty-pleasure food?

Late-night pasta and wine, followed by Gummi Bears.

What’s your favorite movie, and why?

I have a lot, but Blade Runner is my go-to movie. The music by Vangelis is perfect.

Describe the last great meal you ate.

Sushi in Tokyo at Nakamura.

What’s the dish you’re most proud of?

I don’t focus on one dish. I like the ability to change constantly.

What’s your earliest food memory?

Picking vegetables from the garden and cooking them right away as a part of my daily task.

What do you eat for breakfast?

A four-minute boiled egg and crispy nori.

What’s your favorite healthy food?

The slow-pressed juice I make every morning.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Ben Affleck said it best: Work harder than you have to and no matter how many times you get knocked down, get back up.
