Brilliant as Ever

It’s true: 2020 has been a strange year.

… “When I was younger, criticism was the end of the world. Especially when it came to cooking and the food I was presenting to people. It’s something that you really put your whole heart into, so when someone is critical, it hurts and there have been plenty of tears. But I told myself I needed to get over it, it wasn’t anything personal, and that it was only going to make me better. Criticism just helps you grow and it’s part of the learning process. If you do not get that critical feedback, you will never grow and become better.”
