What cookbook is your go-to resource for inspiration ?” I don’t have just one. I have a cookbook library in my house that does include library ladders. I have tons of antique cookbooks that go back to the 1800 s. This weekend my homework is to start analyzing Senegalese food from West Africa .”
After all these years working in eateries do you still enjoy going out to eat ?” Absolutely. I go out to eat more than I probably should just because for me it’s so nice to sit down for once and be on the receiving aim of hospitality instead of dispensing it .” Is there one chef you’d like to cook with ?” I would like to cook with Rene Redzepi or Ben Shewry .” Name the all-time best cook show .” Hands down: Great Chefs generated by John Schoup. It’s from the early’ 90 s, before the working day of the Food Network. Everyone would crowd around the TV at 3 o’clock to consider who would be on the prove .” What is the one tool that you always make sure to pack when you’re traveling for business ?” Always good to have a handy wine key to open you own bottles of beer and wine .” Tory McPhail is the James Beard Award-winning executive cook of New Orleans institution, Commander’s Palace .
