Favorite post-shift meal/late-night snack?
A fried egg sandwich on toasted bread, and if I have it in the fridge, my preferred cheese is Gruyere or American
Go-to cooking soundtrack?
Otis Redding. He just sets you in the mood.
Which words or phrase do you most overuse in the kitchen?
A.T.Dub (all the way) or #BAM
Most underrated/overrated ingredient?
Temperature is seriously underrated… people don’t think about it enough. And white truffle oil is not just overrated, it’s embarrassing.
Favorite Nashville spot?
City House … I love that restaurant and Tandy is a great guy.
