MY SON, SANDY, is undoubtedly the one who inherited the gastronomic savvy people associate most with the Dazas. He has an uncanny ability of appreciating food’s nuances and subtleties. If food were music, he must have perfect pitch. It’s talent. Sandy is happiest around food and people whether he is cooking, cleaning up, or waiting and serving. These passions are essential for anyone serious about embarking on a culinary career. And of course, there’s that other thing called talent.
