Chef's Choice, Part 2: Chef John of Entre:Underground

Categories: Chef's Choice

Favorite cookbooks? I have a lot of cookbooks, so this is hard. If I had to pick a couple, I would say Fergus Henderson's Nose to Tail, Simon Hopkinson's Roast Chicken and Other Stories, Thomas Keller's French Laundry and Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck.

Favorite music to have in the kitchen? If I am controlling the tunes, probably a mix of British post-punk stuff from the early '80s or the Discovery radio station on Pandora.

Most difficult lesson you've learned in this business? To be thick-skinned. Which is hard, because I am by nature too sensitive for my own good.

When did you know for sure that the chef's life was for you? Not sure. All I know is that when I am cooking, I have a profound sense of fulfillment, and that has always been the case.
