Featured Takeaway: Power of passion and skill

“I think anybody can make an amazing pizza with just plain flour, water and salt. And it’s technique. It’s good quality ingredients and good technique. So the love and passion that I have for it translates to that. This means that the technical aspect of it and the craftsmanship, the exchange with the guests is a culmination that creates this incredible demand.”

“I think the small guy should get the ovation. I think the small guy who’s doing a food truck a pop up, the dreamer who’s trying to get it off the ground. I think that’s who we need to follow. They’re the innovators and the ones who are coming and doing something new and different.”
