This is a short radio story on Adria's new book. More little tidbits about what makes him tick.

    interesting quote:

    "As a boy, I didn't hang out in the kitchen watching all the people cook," he says. "I just started out much later in life, and this is really important because I wasn't passionate as a young person and that has given me a very pragmatic approach to my career and my profession. Not having this passion starting out as a young person really marked who I am today."

    I've always been fascinated by the differences between many successful people - those who grow up within an industry, immersed and consumed by it as they develop; and those who, like chef adria, came to their industry armed with life experience from elsewhere.

      Not exactly the same thing, but here Malcolm Gladwell writes about how precocious geniuses differ from late blooming geniuses.
