“My life has been a path on the edge of uncertainty. Today, I think we educate kids to be settled in the comfortable chair. You have your job, you have your little car, you have a place to sleep, and dreams are dead. You don’t grow in a secure path. All of us should conquer something in life, and it needs a lot of work and it needs a lot of risk. In order to grow and to improve, you have to be there a bit at the edge of uncertainty.”
-Francis Mallmann, The Chef’s Table – Season 1, Episode 3
If you have not seen the Netflix docu-series The Chef’s Table, I highly suggest that you check it out. I love it–one third fine dining and cuisine, two thirds philosophy. It makes you think about how little we think of food as an art form, and what “art” is. It made me realize that not every artist needs a paintbrush to paint, or a pencil or pen to draw or write. Sometimes all you need to be an artist is a stove!
