Culinary Sense

Adventures with Food and Life

Me and Alton

 

Hey Peeps!

Last weekend was graduation here at NECI, and Alton Brown was the speaker. He said a lot of great things and we generally very entertaining and insightful.

Since I am on the student council, I was invited to a private reception with Alton and another special guest, distinguished graduate Chef Joey DiNardo.

I got to speak to Alton for a few moments, and he was generous and humble, and of course funny. One important thing that I remember he said was, “nobody owes you anything”. Meaning, just because I will graduate from a fabulous culinary school, it doesn’t mean that I will automatically become executive chef or star of food network right after graduation. You still have to do all the work to get there.
