Judy Rogers, Zuni Cafe I love the earthiness and simplicity of the food that Judy serves. I haven't worked at Zune in about 14 years but I still have dreams of going to work there. Jean Georges Vongerichten, Vong, Jo Jo, Jean Georges The Lafayette was my first experience in a truly french dining establishment I consider Jean Geroge as my mentor in everything I did after that. I learned so much from him. Thomas Keller, French Laundry I worked with Thomas 20 years ago and learned from him about perfection. Thomas is a true perfectionist. I also admire his respect for his staff.
