Geoffrey Zakarian Quotes:

“How you treat the quiet, shy types is the most important. If you leave them to sit in a corner, they will be noticed, and it will affect everyone’s time. I instantly spring on them and treat them as royalty, showing them around and introducing them to everyone so they seem special.”

“I love hospitality, and I love cooking. The kitchen is where I feel most at ease and where I feel most like myself.”

“When you have a chef that wants to be in the spotlight, maybe after one or two appearances on a show, they think they’re at a certain level that they haven’t reached yet in the kitchen. Shows like ‘Top Chef’, ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ have helped bring attention to the culinary world.”

“Cooking a piece of fish and cooking it right. Knowing the fish, knowing the properties of the fish. That’s a hard thing to do rather than covering it with a lot of sauces and foams or other cooking methods that might be high wire acts and look good on the outside.”

“When I entertain, I want to have fun. But I’m also a control person. I don’t go in for those everyone-in-the-kitchen cooking scenes. So if I want to be with my guests, I have to do everything – or nearly everything – in advance.”

“I still have the ‘New York Post’ delivered because it’s so garrulous and nasty and wonderful when you read it in print. Some things just don’t translate online.”
