"The recipe: Hard work, learning to fall in love with what you are doing is a plus-- I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work, the are zero shortcuts. That's it, that is the recipe. It will not always get you where you want but it will get you damn close. But I really do love this craft. #truecooks #cheflife"
