Nice anecdote from a former line chef  APR 24 2008

Nice anecdote from a former line chef at the French Laundry about Eric Ziebold, then the sous-chef there.

He was TFL's first ever sous chef and to this day I have never seen any one person work so many hours. (He, Thomas & Laura all put in 17-19 hour days, 7 days a week.) Everyone knows The French Laundry is an amazing restaurant, but few know why. It's easy to blame or praise one person, but the truth is that it takes a village.
