Gary Jones has some opinions on why young chefs today are better than ever. There are always news people to train in the food industry. They start at the elementary level sometimes. They get great training and are pushed to their limits in order to give people an amazing dining experience.
- Gary Jones will be looking for three, bang-on, balanced dishes with great flavor. If the flavor isn’t right, he doesn’t care how pretty the dish was made.
- Competitions raise a chef’s self-discipline and consistency. It fosters cameraderie when they help each other to improve their dishes.
- Chefs should taste everything they cook and they should work hard.
“Competitions raise a chef’s self-discipline and consistency. And when you put youngsters into competitions like this, you see an amazing growth spurt in them.”
