Q&A with Adrien Nieto ("MasterChef"):

Who was your first cooking inspiration?

My grandmother was my first cooking inspiration! I always think of her hands when I'm cooking. Everything was/is hands on instinctual cooking from getting the ingredients daily and at their freshest point, to the long, sometimes painful,

process of breaking everything down. I remember everything was slow and low cooking and these sometimes tedious things were done with care and the intention that she was feeding me and the rest of my family so she did it with love. A beautiful muse!

What is the first dish you ever mastered?

Eggs, as many ways as possible. It's hard to beat something that goes beyond the realm of breakfast!

What is your favorite thing to cook?

A tie between offal and seafood.

What did you learn as a contestant on "MasterChef"?

I learned that I can learn to do anything I want to! I learned and gained a deep sense of pride, and that I am pretty good when it comes to cooking and food! I learned to fight harder and go after what I love and want! It was a great journey! A balance of humility and pride! I'd do it again in a heartbeat! It was a reminder to be in the now. Always!
