When you're a chef, every once in a while, you have to express yourself. You watch Top Chef, you visit another restaurant, you talk with your foodie buddies, and you just have to do some things that don't fit the charter of your own restaurant. You need to know you can still spread your wings and fly to new heights with your craft. This is just that sort of scratching, and YOU have an opportunity to benefit from that itch.
