As far as I know. He's still teaching. He was wearing one of his CIA culinary instructor Jackets at the CMC dinner. I had a great time working with him for the brief time of 2 days. And your so right, It makes your life so much easier when you enjoy what you do. I couldnt imagine another job that would make me happier.
On a side note. We had the big man working on the line lastnight. I got my first taste of the wrath. We had 2 tickets with veal strips on them. 1 which was on fire, and the other 2 strips just went in line right behind it. I fired the one veal strip and placed it on my board to be picked up when Chef finished plating the rest of the plate. He then called for the two following steaks to be fired. Immediately after that, he said how long on the strip. (it was waiting for him on my board) i miscommunicated and thought he was still referring to the next two strips and said "5 minutes chef". I thought I saw fire in his eyes, and he went off . He had already plated up all of the other plates and this was a 6 top. "GOD******. Why in the hell didnt you say anything when i was calling for it. COME ON AARON. SONOFAB****** (slamming his fist down). I was like, Chef, I have the first strip ready for you here, i thought you were calling for the other 2. All in all, he thought i didnt have the steak, didnt tell him, he went up on the whole table, and it would have had to sit for 5 mins if i indeed did not have the strip. But, i did So i wasnt totally in the wrong. Just a lil communication issue. Today is a new day and ill do what I do. I love my job
