“I am a firm believer in the ideal that food is one of the few international languages. People use food to communicate with their neighbors, their friends, and their families…to evoke emotion, to strengthen bonds, or to help break the ice. Food is the soul of one’s culture. With the large rifts this world has from one culture to the next, at least with food they are able to express themselves—and more and more they are doing so with fresh produce. Everyone must eat. The greatest meals begin with the freshest ingredients.”
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
