I got to see him speak and cook tonight. Pretty awesome guy...and he even finished off the demonstration with a fisherman's song.
I asked him for advice for someone interested in working in restaurants. After tangents and some stories, he said to eat well and to pay attention to what makes food we enjoy tasty. Oh and I asked what his favorite knives were. He said his custom Nenox Yanagi and Yo-Deba with deer antler handles.
I only had my iPhone, so I mostly took pictures of him and the big screen. I tried to get some knife shots, but it was tough. He had really nice silk bags like the ones Jon sells.
