Happy Father's Day, Chef

That's a picture of my late father sometime in the eighties/early-nineties with (who I'm told was) former Governor General of Canada Jeanne Sauvé (and some other guy who looks pretty important).

So this proves that I come by cooking honestly!
In all seriousness though, there are many important things that my father taught me, and many great ideas and experiences that he introduced me to — far too many than I will get into here. But, I will say that getting the chance to hang out in a professional kitchen as a kid growing up was so much fun, and it shaped my outlook on both food and work. (And, I didn't do that much damage — a couple of over-cheesed pizzas, that's all.)

Hope you all had a good Father's Day!
