so jared fergusen of montrose, houston, texas, somewhere(???)

found me a couple of years ago and went through culinary boot camp…he is now at austin culinary academy where he also works for starlight and staged at uchi…where he earned the respect of tyson and his crew…

anyway on this first night of a six night culinary festival, i was burried up to my third or second chin in fuck-all…jared, who had climed on a bus early morning on one of his two days off, shows up at 8pm and jumps on the expo line and bails out yours truly like he had been working with us all week. i am so proud of “my son”…hes all grows up and grows up!
