How did you learn to be a chef? I went to culinary school at The Chef’s Academy outside Raleigh, but the best training I had was staging in different restaurants.
What did that involve? Staging is when you work under a chef for two or three days and learn their techniques. I went staging around New York and went to the Michelin realm to see what it’s about.
