More From Ted Allen
- "I think what I do differently from a lot of TV chefs is that I break down barriers and make fine food more accessible to the regular person, who might be intimidated. I try hard, particularly with wine, to make it not intimidating. It’s sort of a teaching job."
- "I really have a great deal of humility in that department, and a great deal of respect for people who spend their lives learning how to make these amazing preparations."
- "You know the great irony is that people think you have to have money to enjoy fine food, which is a shame."
