Chef's-Father's Day

Updated: Jun 17, 2019


"The power of a dad in a child's life is unmatched."

Justin Ricklefs


Working in the culinary industry is certainly not an easy job, long hours and high competition make it a pretty demanding job. So how being a father and working long hours come into balance? While working I have heard my co-workers saying: "I have to go and pick up my girls" or " My wife and babies are waiting for me at home" or... " I am running to my second job, i need to provide for my family"


So today, I definitively want to appreciate all Dads who are in this industry; from Chefs, cooks and dishwashers... We have so much to learn from them.


Not long ago, I had the privilege to work with a wise and hardworking man named Rudy, father of 2 grown man and I did not hesitate to ask him to give us some words, any advice he wanted to give to the young generations that want to purse a culinary career, here is what he said:






Thanks Rudy, honestly your conversations during work remained me about the good influence one person can make on somebody else. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!



" I believe no chef becomes what he becomes without having many people influence him." Jose Andres


"Anyone who's a chef, who loves food, ultimately knows that all that matters is: 'Is it good? Does it give pleasure?"

Anthony Bourdain



"I tell a student that the most important class you can take is technique. A great chef is first a great technician. 'If you are a jeweler, or a surgeon or a cook, you have to know the trade in your hand. You have to learn the process. You learn it through endless repetition until it belongs to you".

Jacques Pepin
