“The day I found out I was a chef was the day I found out my true identity,” said Chef Ford. “As a chef, we’re always going to be search for who we are as a chef. A few years after working with John George, I just woke up and said ‘this is me… this is who I am.’ And I think that’s the pinnacle in a chef’s career. Having our restaurant, Stubborn Seed, named a Michelin One-Star is definitely another pinnacle. It’s such a honor to be recognized and appreciated for the work you put into every single dish.”
