ABC's Nightline is airing a Platelist segment with Boston chef Tony Maws tonight, barring any breaking news, etc. Funnily enough, we interviewed him just this week, too. On Nightline, Maws talks about how he got his start:
When it came time to have my first job when I was 15 years old, I sent my resumes off to this thing at Martha's Vineyard over the summer to become a dishwasher. And, of course, three and a half minutes after I sent my resume I got a call. Because who the hell sends a resume to become a dishwasher? Washing pots and pans with stuff whizzing by my head – it’s this incredible environment. Its teamwork. It's the best game in town. Like literally playing a game, every single night. High energy, there is a goal, there is a deadline, and winning. And everyone working together to create something. And of course, I'm around food so I'm eating the half eaten lamb chops and lobster tails thinking this is the best thing I have ever seen. That’s how it all started.
