The Battle is Not the War
While the past few weeks have been filled with a lot of ups and downs, I have always felt that life is a series of challenges that breed new and exciting opportunities. Even though a lot of what happened was mischaracterized I know one thing: I can cook.
Whether it was serving food to the Royal Family during my tenure on the Royal Yacht, Britannia, training many of the cooks and staff who work in the White House Mess or devising menus and presenting dishes to my adopted country's Chief Executives, I am proud of my culinary accomplishments and of the work I've done on Dinner: Impossible, where I have faced some of the toughest cooking situations a chef could ever imagine.
I am proudest of the friends I've made along the way, the lives I've been allowed to touch and most of all, of the love and support of my family. I am ready and eager to move forward to the next chapter, the next challenge and the next opportunity. I thank you for the support I have received from so many of you and the heartfelt good wishes and prayers you have sent to me and to my family. Let's move on together!
