Chef Guy Fieri on Innovation
Posted by Plish on April 1, 2014
Every time I get the opportunity, I ask great chefs this simple question:
What does innovation mean to you?
This year at the International Home and Housewares Show, I caught up (quite literally as you see from the video,) with Chef Guy Fieri. His response to the question: “What does innovation mean to you?” is shown below. Give it a watch and join me below the video and I’ll share my thoughts.
Chef Fieri’s thoughts echo, I think, what many people believe innovation is: The willingness to “step outside the box” and try new things, the willingness to experiment. Undergirding this willingness, though, is a key acceptance of failure. He realizes that not everything will be great but we won’t know unless we try.
What are your thoughts on Chef Fieri’s approach?
Thank you, Chef Fieri! You’re schedule was fast paced and packed with action (like your food!) and taking the time to chat was most gracious. Thank you, and keep rocking!
