Inspiration from Jeong Kwan
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
One major holiday down, two more to go! I was able to squeeze a couple days of rest out of Thanksgiving and I hope, you too found a little time to relax. Monday arrived and I am back running at full speed – coffee dates with more new chefs, meetings with renovation contractors, selecting finishes, making decisions and working a little scheduling magic for the new year. It's all very exciting but moving so fast.
Two nights ago I couldn't sleep and did a very uncommon thing for me – I turned on the television. We do not have cable so I decided Netflix's Chef's Table would be the perfect thing to put me back to sleep. I selected Season 3, Episode 1: Jeong Kwan. I now believe everyone has "their" Chef's Table episode, the one that resonates with them to the point of tears. This is mine. "Creativity and ego cannot go together. If you free yourself from the comparing and jealous mind, your creativity opens up endlessly. Just as water springs from a fountain, creativity springs from every moment" - Jeong Kwan. This is everything. It is from this place that I hope to serve The Learning Kitchen.
