profession Quotes

TV is great and can open up doors, but if you aren't there to cook because you love it, don't go. Don't go to "Top Chef" just to be "famous." It's annoying to our profession and what we all love to do. You want to compete against like-minded people.

As is the case for many of us, Tori's ancestry is a mix of races and religions, philosophies and professions, fortunes and foibles.
