The sound of teamwork…how can that be defined? A kitchen working with focus and passion towards a common goal excites me. I love being apart of the team executing a large event of platted dishes that are composed artfully. Such is the occasion above where my friend Chef John SharpeÂ and I were creating Native American inpired dishes of sustainable foods. Seeing the plates being wisked away in a blur after they are completed is very telling of the moment. A commoradorie forms when chefs join together to cook a meal and IÂ believe in theÂ efforts of planning, communicating, preparing and plating, we grow stronger!
Once a Californian, John is now the Chef/Owner of the Turquoise Room at the La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Arizona. www.theturquoiseroom.net He is a dear friend, mentor, and chef. No doubt you will hear more about him in future blogs because he does amazing things with Native American foods like Churro Lamb, Tepary Beans & Piki Bread.
