Who is your toughest food critic?
Cat: Probably Jennifer, my partner. She'll tell me straight up: "This sucked. Try again." She's very, very patient where I'm kind of this fast-paced [chef], and so she definitely can do a really good grilled, low-and-slow fennel chicken. She tells me: "Don't even open the top of the grill and touch it. Don't turn it, don't flip it, don't look at it." … She's someone I know will always tell me truth.
