Most days it comes easy for Jason Genao. But on the days that it doesn't, it's often his mum who gives him a little nudge in the right direction. To keep his sense of humour in check.

Jason: I started out with Dominican food because that’s all the ingredients we had in the house. But I remember I saw the movie Julie & Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, and I became obsessed. My brother bought me the whole collection of Mastering the Art of French Cooking and I got really into French cooking. I was around 12 years old, so I’d call my dad, like, “Could you bring this or could you bring that?” Or I’d tell my brother that I’d cook if he could just take me to the grocery store. I was experiencing new herbs that weren’t typically Hispanic—such as sage and basil—and ingredients that I’d only ever heard of. Like curry powder and gochujang. And then I started going to a fancy market and would buy things like foie gras and truffle oil. And make truffle mac ’n’ cheese and pan-seared foie gras. And now I’ve sort of fallen into this realm where I mix French and Dominican cuisines. (Source: www.bonappetit.com)
