Jonathan Waxman Wire

waxan.jpgNYC chef Jonathan Waxman on chefs being called rock stars: "I think like in any profession, it's gratifying to have accolades, it's nice to have your name in lights, so to speak, but if you let it get ahead of you, if you get consumed by hubris, then it's a really ugly thing. I always tell everyone, even myself, if you believe your own press, you're an idiot. That's one of the danger signs of thinking your shit doesn't stink. It's a really bad scenario. I always tell my cooks, you have to stay humble." [Eater Nashville]
