 What is your must-have kitchen item?

I would say a good set-up. If the line is stocked, everything is prepped and you’re set up, then you’re going to have a good day. If not, then the day will be horrible; you’re never going to get a good set-up.
 
What would you choose for your last meal?
I’d have to say really, really incredible barbecue, like real pit-barbecue.
 
Favorite restaurant besides your own?
Either 900 Degrees or Hooked. I go to Hooked all the time.
 
What celebrity would you like to see eating at your restaurant?
I guess whoever the president is [at any given time]. That’s pretty awesome to have the president in your restaurant. That’s something you’re never going to forget.
 
What is the biggest food trend in New Hampshire right now?
Definitely healthy food; healthy and locally sourced food. Gluten-free — and you know what I’m noticing more and more now is dairy-free. We’re about to make a huge switch in our smoothies and go to an all dairy-free line. You can add yogurt if you want — but we’re selling just as many dairy-free smoothies as we do with yogurt. 
 
What is your favorite meal to cook at home?
I always seem to cook this big smorgasbord of stuff when I cook at home. Lots of vegetables, I really love working with vegetables — I love making a huge green salad, roasted vegetables. Because I love when you put vegetables in the middle of the table how good it looks. 
 
What is your favorite dish on your restaurant’s menu?
Definitely our huevos rancheros. Most people would say it’s not a traditional huevos rancheros, but we sell tons of it. It’s got so many unique flavors. I serve it with chili  — I love making chili, it’s one of my favorite things to make  — so it’s our house-made chili. It looks really nice.
