I was impressed by your handling of the dreaded turkey in the recent NY Times article.
Do you do much preparation of meat outside of the restaurant? If so, what are your favourite meats, favourite cuts, favourite methods?

Later, I was sous chef to Jean Louis Palladin at the Watergate in Washington DC. I was in charge of sauces and the meat station. Jean Louis loved cooking meat and he was one of the best at roasting ducks, squab, foie gras etc....
At Le Bernardin, we dedicate ourselves to fish, but if someone is invited and wants meat, we always accomodate.
On the weekend, at home and after a week of cooking and eating fish, I eat meat of course (once a week). I love cooking just about everything. I enjoy cooking poultry or big pieces like leg of lamb, saddles, and sometimes just a grilled T-bone steak.
