What's the first dish you remember cooking?

The French equivalent of shepherd’s pie (hachis parmentier) with my mom.


What Prep To You Hate To Do? Love To Do?

I don’t really hate anything about cooking. I love everything from the prep to the cleaning up. If I walk into a dirty kitchen and I have to clean before I cook, then I guess you could say I hate that.

What food is your guilty pleasure?

Ice cream sundae, especially the one from McDonalds.


If You Weren’t A Chef What Occupation Would You Like To Try And Why?

An architect. I love to design and build. My grandfather was an architect and it has always fascinated me.

What Or Who Inspires Your Culinary Creativity And Why?

I get asked this question all the time. There is no one answer. I get inspiration everywhere. It can come from books, travel, visiting restaurants, from a simple “moment”. No one can predict inspiration. It just happens. Hawaii is a great source of inspiration!

" Chef Fest is by far one of my top two food events in the world. It’s the true definition of a “workcation”. When you’re in such a beautiful location, it’s hard to call anything work. "

"This makes it extra special for the guests because all of the chefs are totally relaxed and just so happy to share what they love to do: cook and interact with the guests!"

" With a bounty of local ingredients, it’s fun to take some traditional recipes and give them an “island style” twist."
