I took a day this week to spend in the kitchen at The Boiler Room in
For me, the importance of a day of observation like this is simply to watch and learn. Our restaurants are not the same in style or execution; however we do share the same values for care of preparation, local sourcing and creativity. I enjoy seeing people committed to their craft and listening to their explanations of how they approach the work of creating.
To do creative work requires the constant need for inspiration. The word Inspire means to breathe in, to be filled with breath. This air is all around us, usually free for the taking. Look for it and receive it.
Without inspiration, there is no life.
