i have had the pleasure of only seeing a couple young cooks become full blown “cooks” – one in particular is justin bayse.  its been an absolute joy to watch him develop his own style of cuisine and even more impressive his passion and convection for the art of charcuterie.   james, has also completely blown me away.  he came to me as a culinary student with zero kitchen experience and all i could do was allow him to stage…

he staged for a lil over a week and we parted ways and after many phone calls and failed attempts to reach me i finally gave in and said “ok, be here at 4 and we will get you started”.  beside the fact he cut himself on his first night and had to leave to get stitches he never gave up and in 4-5 short months he has risen to my “go-to-guy” and you can say you heard it all hear first – “this guy is the real deal and he gets it”…
