“I tell a student that the most important class you can take is technique. A great chef is first a great technician. ‘If you are a jeweler, or a surgeon or a cook, you have to know the trade in your hand. You have to learn the process. You learn it through endless repetition until it belongs to you.”
Jacques Pepin 

Enjoy the day along with a coffee milkshake and a bagel and maybe do some dancing in the street! Lol 💃
