Congratulations Dame Farley!
What are you most excited about in becoming a Dame?
I’m very excited to be surrounded by so many talented and unique women in the industry. I want to connect, learn, and find ways to get involved.
If I were a kitchen tool, I'd a be...
I’m extremely clumsy, so probably something that helps prevent or clean up messes. Paper towels or parchment, maybe?
The highlight of my culinary career so far is.....
Visiting the White House with my culinary school classmates and listening to Michelle Obama speak about her Let’s Move campaign. There have probably been bigger career highlights since then but that was this awe-inspiring moment when I realized how much my life was about to change.
The most embarrassing/ funniest thing that has happened to me in my career so far is......
Anytime I try to speak in front of a large group usually winds up being embarrassing. So lets just say all public appearances.
I think the DC dining scene is......
Underrated. We have so many amazing restaurants and chefs.
The person I'm most inspired by is......
Julia Child. ‘My Life in France’ inspired me to change my career path.
My motto is......
Follow your instincts and make your own happiness
