Willie White, Q&A
"My wife does most of the cooking at home. We eat regular things, like pot roast or barbecue."
What do you like to eat when you go out?
"We like to try new restaurants. My favourite foods are fish, like bluefin tuna and a nice ribeye steak. But I like tasting desserts too."
What's your pet peeve?
"I don't like messy kitchens. I can't work in a muddle."
What do you listen to on the radio?
"I like country music. In the car, I listen to sports radio, especially during hockey season."
Where do you see yourself in five years?
"That's a long time. When I was young I always had a game plan, but now I take it a year at a time."
What would you do if you weren't a chef?
"I like cars and animals, so I might've been a vet. And I love to get into the yard with the flowers and trees. Last year, we put in a rock garden. Working in the yard is one of my favourite things."
