Rules to live by in business: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? I think that if it’s a dinner thing, it’d have to be one of these super chefs like Hubert Keller and I’d let him pick the place – Plus that way we’d be guaranteed a table.

What is your dream job? Something food related – food critic
