Bravotv.com: Anything else you'd like to add? I had a blast in Chicago. What a huge honor to be there. I looked around and I was like, "If I go home tonight, not only have I come so far, but I'm on the greatest cooking show on TV, and I've made it almost halfway. What a great opportunity." And then I look up, and there's the guy who actually gave me the inspiration to keep cooking, and to get knocked off by him was almost kind of bittersweet. What a great step towards the next step in my career. I would have loved to stay longer, but it happened, and you can't go back.
I'm very happy, and I'm enjoying the hell out of San Francisco. It's an interesting market right now. I don't know what's going on with the economy, but we're definitely not feeling it in California. You know, we'll see. We've been looking at companies a lot, and we actually put offers in for two in the last couple days. If it's not in California, it's just not home.
