First time we met, it was my first Master’s and we were swapped in our kitchens. That bridged to us shooting ideas and recipes, likes and wonders, and techniques.

You were one of the first chefs to connect with me on social, and one of the last I saw that year. I kept up with your achievements and you congratulated me on my own. You were a phenomenal chef, a great friend, and a good person. It is a loss to the culinary world, it is a loss for us as your coworkers, friends, and families. This Masters season is to you, Kendall Wayne Ross.
