“I like to work with my hands and make people happy. Food excites so many people, and a great meal or dessert can take them out of their heads for a minute or two, allowing them to focus more on their present being, their senses or nostalgic memories, and ultimately providing a certain happiness. That still really propels my choices every day. „
