Who taught you: I suppose everyone.
Certainly my German grandmother had a major influence on my cooking. She is a fabulous cook and taught me how to take low-quality and limited ingredients and to turn them into something delicious.
Also, I have spent a great deal of time reading. Most great chefs have put out a book or two, and each have something to give in terms of an approach to food or a different technique.
Mostly though, every time I eat a great meal, either at a restaurant or a friend’s house, I spend my time thinking about how it was created and if nothing else, take a part (or all of it) back to my kitchen.
