On Tuesday May 8th I had the honor to cook for one of the culinary greats Marco Pierre White. He was here to promote his memoirs “The Devil in the kitchen”

If You haven’t read the book “The Devil in the Kitchen” its a must read. You can see the essay I wrote for the S.F Chronicle about the book here.
Earlier in the day before the event he stoped by to introduce himself and talk a bit over coffee. It was great to be able to sit and have a drink with a man who has given me so much inspiration and drive. He signed my original copy of White Heat with “Never forget mother nature is the artist, your the cook” what a statement, its good to be reminded of that, it helps put things into prespective. He is a shit load of fun when he gets started, but also a very serious man with alot of knowledge to share. “Forget cooking for the punters! remember you know when its right so keep cooking like that.”

I cannot wait till my next trip to London I will definatly be looking Marco up for a drink and a plate of food.
