Last Nights

2012_2_laiskonis.jpgMichael Laiskonis, the Le Bernardin pastry chef for eight years, recounts his last night in the kitchen, from his noon arrival until he sends his last dessert out at 1 AM, concluding, "As sad as I am to close this chapter, and as excited as I am to set to work on something new, I realize that if I ever only did this one thing -- inspire one person to achieve their own greatness -- then, well, I guess I don't really ever have to do anything else."
