NEW YORK, NY - MAY 09: (L-R) Harry Connick, Jr. and Mario Batali attend the 2013 Joyful Heart Foundation Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street on May 9, 2013 in New York City.
If you pick up a book from Emeril Lagasse or Julia Child or Mario Batali or whoever, there's a little bit of intimidation there ... But this book is just coming from little old me. You don't have to feel like you're going into a Top Chef competition with whatever you create.
In terms of sourcing, I try to stick with local as much as possible ... Many chefs share a similar ethos; they care about where the food comes from. I draw a lot of influence from chefs like Thomas Keller and Mario Batali, but there are so many great chefs; I just kind of pull from everyone.More quotes »
