|Carmellini, back in the day|
"After high school, I decided to go to cooking school. In 1989, there was basically Gourmet magazine, and that was about it. And Julia Child. So when I told people I was going to go be a chef, it was as if I told my friends I was going to go be a monk. It's very different than the way the profession is viewed now."
