The regimented world of the military often overlaps with those of the restaurant industry–in fact, the essential brigade de cuisine was inspired by Escoffier’s time in the French Army.

    My heartfelt thanks goes out to all of those who served in the military, in the United States or with our allies, for your sacrifices, your dedication and your time. We can enjoy discussing food and chefs and celebrity because you put in that service for all of us. Again, thank you, and a big thank you to the families of veterans and servicemen and women, whose support of the troops is so vital, rife with its own sacrifices.
