Q&A Marc Murphy
So how did you end up at the Institute of Culinary Education? What impact did that have on your career?
I didn't do well in school, I'm very dyslexic. My high school counselor looked at my grades and said: “Well, son, we think you should just go get a job. We don't think any colleges are going to take you.” I thought, well, if I learn how to cook, I'll be able to eat. The one thing I didn't want to be was hungry! So I decided to go to a cooking school and I ended up getting addicted to it.
