    Summary

    Cooking itself is the art of surrender. The work of it is true hard labor: sweat, aching joints, sometimes blood. The fruits of it are beautiful, carefully asymmetrically arranged on spotless porcelain. But the fruits of it are for someone else to enjoy.

    The best chef in the world is the one who can put everything he’s got into a dish and then hand it off at the pass and not even think to look after it. The best chef in the world surrenders.

    Summary

    Jonny Connolly was wearing a long black trench coat, an xkcd T-shirt, a pair of black Vibram FiveFingers, rectangular rimless glasses, and an overgrown ginger neckbeard. But Jonny seemed like a nice guy, if incurably dorky, so Ken averted his eyes and tried not to take any further notice of his... outfit.
