I love the drama and stress of a busy kitchen and bustling restaurant, the critical path and the flow, the energy that permeates the whole building. The frantic panic of busy service slowly washed in a steady hum of order. 20 People on a line in the kitchen move together and without words, in cadence of fire and heat from grills and sauté pans, it is beautiful music. The plate of food is the trophy.” – Chef Leon
