Recently, Henderson spoke with the Boston Globe about his unique culinary training: "You may learn institutional-style cooking there, but the foundation’s the same: flavor, cooking technique, seasonings, and spices. I also learned things like discipline, communication, and work ethic. When I came out, I didn’t settle for working at a casual-dining restaurant. I went straight to an upscale restaurant in Beverly Hills, washing dishes." [Boston Globe]
