Get To Know Chef Steven Goff
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received from a fellow chef? When cooking, speaking, competing, or teaching set the tone and standard of who YOU are, what YOU stand for and what YOU believe in. Don’t let other people or the media decide for you. – Chef John Fleer
What are some of your favorite cooking trends happening right now? Nose to tail cooking/Sustainability. The world will not last much longer if we don’t open our eyes and start paying attention to where things come from , what the TRUE cost of that is and make sure we utilize every inch of every piece of food we come in contact with. Its our responsibility to respect the land that our food grows in, the lives that are given, and the work and sacrifice it takes to make every bite we eat. We are all connected and I feel it’s very important to recognize and appreciate that.
One kitchen tool you can’t live without: Mandolin
