“I am totally fearless! Well, of course, I’m not totally fearless. I worry constantly and obsess over things, but I just don’t let fear stand in the way of doing something that I really want to do.” – Tom Ford
Often expressed in food and entertaining, Claude’s approach to life is consistent – take a challenge, dream or goal head on and just make it happen. In preparing for the MasterChef Canada adventure, Claude has invested much time in preparing. He has reviewed past episodes, done a lot of extra cooking and tried a number of new cooking techniques.
Yesterday, his colleagues were treated to chocolate cupcakes with dulce de leche buttercream frosting. It is not so much that making cupcakes is fearless, it is that standing in front of friends, family and strangers in a very public way allowing the for possibility of judgement is fearless.
MasterChef is an extreme version of this same process. Claude is walking head on into a competitive experience designed to push a person to the edge of abilities. The outcomes are real. The outcomes are public. The extraordinary part of all this is that Claude walk’s into this adventure in spite of any fear and unknown outcomes.
