After a shift what is your favorite guilty pleasure to eat? “Honestly, most every night I have a big bowl of ice cream. I’ve been eating a lot of French Silk. It’s Edy’s slow-churned, so it makes me feel better about myself because it’s a little bit lower in calories. It has little bits of chocolate. My all-time favorite ice cream is Butter Crunch from Friendly’s. Only East Coast folks know what this is. It’s this buttery, rich-flavored ice cream and there are little bits of gooey toffee throughout. I used to make my dad take me to get this ice cream all the time when I was growing up.”

What is your favorite music to listen to while you cook? “I let my cooks pick all the music because I don’t feel like I’m cool enough anymore to pick stuff that they won’t make fun of me for. But I banned screaming music. The butchers listen to it sometimes, which I kind of understand. It’s fitting. I like everybody to play happier music.”

What cookbook is your go-to resource for inspiration? “I always enjoy reading Jamie Oliver’s cookbooks. Just because they’re so impressively massive and everyone has such beautiful, casual tasty looking things.”
