My Favorite Chefs: part III

Chef JQ

My culinary journey would not have taken such a twist if not for this man.
At 11, My first fine dining meal was at les amis. Chef JQ the man behind the kitchen. First taste of Foie was Unforgettable.

We met again 12 years later, he introduced me to chef gunther and thats how i started my staggiare at LA.
Working alongside with him on one occasion was an honor.

Thank you chef for your invaluable advise =)
