Food should be fun.
Hopefully, imparting what's important to me, respect for the food and that information about the purveyors, people will realize that for a restaurant to be good, so many pieces have to come together.

I wanted to learn everything I could about what it takes to be a great chef. It was a turning point for me.
Now the restaurants have begun to catch up with the wine-making there are numerous great restaurants in Napa Valley, and it's wonderful because the people are there for just that: great food and great wine.
