James Kent, Former Executive Chef at The NoMad in New York, shares his career timeline and advice for up-and-coming professionals.
“Every year an asparagus shoot peaks out of the ground, almost like clockwork. Every year I'm excited and challenged to work with it in a new way. I'm excited to see what my peers are doing. I'm excited to see what those who have taught me are doing. And, at the end of the day, I'm excited for the next year, when I'm going to see that asparagus again to start the cycle and challenge of creativity. „
