In A Return to Cooking, there is this wonderful line - "...cooking for the landscape, letting place determine the menu", which reflects your attraction to using local seasonal ingredients to create inspiring dishes.
Are there other regions in the world where you would like to spend some time in order to explore its indigenous fresh food ingredients to further develop artistically and personally as a chef? What would these ingredients be that you could not get from or prefer not to get from your New York suppliers?
