I wonder if you could tell us something about your own cooking at home and how you understand translating the great traditions of professional cooking to home cooking.
(Also, a great pig story for that context would not go unappreciated.)

About the pig--there's no better creature on earth for cooking. The variety of stuff you can do with it, the miracle of its fat, so creamy and luxurious, oh man. Grill some hog belly, finish it slowly in the oven till it's meltingly tender--if I die I want it to happen when I'm eating hog belly and I'll pray simply to be preseved in that moment. No, wait, better: hog belly confit, deep fried so it's crispy outside and melting inside. ... I'm getting hungry.
