The Best Chef in the World

As soon as you have 20 minutes to spare, I encourage you to go watch this short film about Sally Schmidt, produced by Oscar® award winning documentary filmmaker Ben Proudfoot, for the New York Times1.

Speaking of restaurants, Sally started a little establishment you might have heard of called The French Laundry.2

I particularly like this comment in the accompanying article:

Talking to Ms. Schmitt that morning, I learned she held a different kind of wisdom: that success may have other definitions.

Life-work balance for the win!
