5:05 am
hypersensitivity to what occurred on the 1st that caused people to react in the way that they did. i don't want to -- i'm not -- i don't have a problem with that. there's just consequences to it. >> chief dannonsaid the caller was most likely calling a prank. more than 4,000 passengers had to be rescreened. l.a.x. was on lockdown for about two and a half hours. i'm serene branson. now a series of fixes for the affordable health care act. there's some hope this weekend the reports that the website can now handle more people without crashing. and a key deadline has been pushed back. but will it satisfy the public or the president's a little bit cat opponents? political opponents? a senior administration official says the white house is anticipating a surge in
5:06 am
mid-december. a sign-up date has shifted. a lot depends on whether the website is functioning a week from today. after another week of embarrassing website breakdowns like this one in miami when the website crashed right in front of kathleen sebelius the obama administration tried another affordable care act reboot, a key deadline pushed back. this time the sign-up date for coverage moves from december 15th to december 23rd, giving consumers an extra eight days to enroll for coverage set to begin january 1st. the move was made after consulting with insurance agencies and consumers, who suppressed frustration in dealing with the website. >> this extension will allow consumers more time to review plan options, to talk to their families providers oren rollment assisters and to enroll in a plan. >> i may add more confusion as the first of the year approaches and raises questions whether inches companies will be able to process applications in time.
5:07 am
for now the more pressing deadline for the white house is november 30th. website fixes are supposed to be completed by then. the former white house budget director coordinating the website repair efforts said despite recent glitches in a week the website will be able to handle 50,000 simultaneousous users. >> by the end of november, the vast majority of users will be able to smoothly use the site and we are on target for that. we've said on these calls and in other venues that there are some folks who may be better served through in-person assistance or call centers. >> the administration says that the website can now handle 25,000 concurrent users without malfunction. there is still work to get where the white house said it should be. the goal is for 800,000 consumers to be able to use the website each day. >> thank you, jeff. now to the negotiations with
5:08 am
iran over its nuclear program. a deal might be in reach. secretary of state john kerry flew overtightnight to geneva switzerland. margaret traveled with the secretary. good morning margaret. >> good morning. secretary kerry and top diplomats from china, russia uk germany and france all flew here in the hopes of boosting the chances for an iranian nuclear deal. all this diplomatic fire power does not mean an agreement has been reached. but the hope is that kerry's personal involvement will make one possible. this is the second time in two weeks that kerry has intervened. but many of the sticking points remain the same. his very first meeting within an hour of landing here was with the french foreign minister. someone who has taken a very hard line here saying iran needs to shut down one of their
5:09 am
nuclear sites and provide more explanation as to what they're going to do with their nuclear materials before any type of concession is made. right from there he went straight in to meet with the russian foreign minister, a friend to iran, to try to strategyize. so far no substantive one on one negotiations between the u.s. and the iranian delegation that has been here now about four days. so the world is sort of waiting to see what's going to be possible. what we know about the draft tech so far is it is likely to say iran has the right to a peaceful nuclear program, but they don't have the right to make weapons grade material. they need to prove they are not trying to build a weapon. they will get 7 to $10 billion in relief a package that the obama administration says is small but they know the iranian economy desperately needs that help. >> is. >> a risk that time is running out?
5:10 am
>> well, the iranian delegation really needs quick relief on the financial front to go back home and show to the hard liners that it's worth making any kind of negotiation and concession here. the u.s. and international sanctions have drained about $120 billion in oil sales. there's $100 billion in assets frozen. and iranians want access to that quickly. at the same time, there's similar pressure in washington because the senate signaled this week. president obama has one month before they move ahead with another round of sanctions. that could destroy any chances for diplomatic deal. >> margaret brennan in geneva switzerland, thank you. 50 years ago today, john f. kennedy's coffin arrived at the white house, one day after he was assassinated in dallas. yesterday, members of the kennedy family paused to remember the 35th president of
5:11 am
the united states. anna warner has more. >> reporter: members of president kennedy's family came to remember him at arlington national sepl tore. his 85-year-old sister and only surviving sibling jean kennedy smith laid a wreath. in surrey england, president kennedy's granddaughter joined the leader of the house of lords at the official british memoryial memorial. they planted an oak sapling in his honor. president obama caused his president receiver's enduring print on american history. thousands turned out at daily plaza to remember the day 50 years ago when the unthinkable happened here. dallas mayor mike rollins. >> well it seems we all grew up
5:12 am
that day. city and citizens. suddenly we had to step up to try to deliver to the challenges of the words and visions of a beloved president. our collective hearts were broken. >> reporter: justin little came from birmingham, alabama to pay his respects. >> i believe he was probably our best president. or would have been if he had more time. >> reporter: teresa hynes delivered from bowling green, kentucky. >> it was very moving. he was our president. he was assassinated. something you don't think would ever happen in the united states. >> reporter: at 12:30, the moment of the assassination, bells tolled and the crowd observed a moment of silence. historian david mccullough speaking here told the crowd -- >> gone but not forgotten is the old expression is tore departed heroes. but if not forgotten they are
5:13 am
not gone. >> reporter: for cbs this morning saturday" anna warner dallas. tomorrow a key player in the events in delays 50 years ago. clint hill. the former secret service agent to leaped onto the limousine after jfk was shot. his brother's assassin was on the move. convicted in the shooting death of robert kennedy was transferred from a state prison friday to a facility in san diego. a corrections department spokesman described the move as routine and said the date was an unfortunate coincidence. now to the stock market. a notable run by the bulls. the dow industrial closed up again on friday to a record high over 16,000 the seventh consecutive week of gains for wall street. let's take a closer with michael
5:14 am
santori. how significant is this do you think? >> the round numbers aren't that significant. the fact that the s&p 500 is up 27% this year, up 160% since the market started in 2009 is somewhat significant. it's a broad recognition of the forces that have been driving things. corporate profits are very strong high levels. money is very cheap freely available. the latest seven-week sprint is very extraordinary. we rarely get seven weeks up in a row. it's a recognition that the corporate is very strong. slow and steady economic growth is good enough. >> we saw health care stocks led this market rise. how are they more attracted to investors? >> it had been an inclusive rally. health care is dominated by big companies who have tons of cash. they're sharing a lot of that cash with dividends and buying back their own stock. health care is right in the sweet spot of what people like about the condition of corporate america right now. >> from what i'm hearing, the
5:15 am
momentum is sort of the upper direction here. there's nothing stopping this right now. >> the one thing you can't argue about is the momentum. these are clues you look for for a market topping out. it has been broad. individuals are finally catching on and putting money into the market. but it's not a cheap market anymore. obviously relative to corporate profits. we have come a long way. so maybe we will have to have a little bit of a gut check at some point when the federal reserve changes course on its policies. >> what comes up has to come down. >> eventually, yes. >> is there a possibility we're in the bubble right now? >> i down the we're actually in the bubble. one of the reasons everyone is talking about a bubble. it rarely happens that way. if we actually extrapolate these trends, very cheap money for a very long time. people getting increasingly confident in bidding up stocks it ends there perhaps at some point. we're in the equivalent of the middle of where we were in the '80s and '90 opening statement.s.
5:16 am
june and august were the two months when the the fed was coincidentally talking about tapering pulling back on its stimulus. the they're betting now that is next spring. >> the market is going to try to front run that possibility. when it seems very likely the fed is going to change the trajectory, i think the markets will have a little bit of stat at that point. could be the perfect occasion for a pull back. so could contentious budget talks. interest rates will rise in advance of that. we will have to see if the fed sticks to its guns. >> interesting, though. government shutdown didn't did he rail this. michael, thanks so much >> the federal chair sparked a firestorm when he said the agency might end rules that ban
5:17 am
texting and cell phone use on planes. now, he's coming out against allowing passengers to do just that. tom wheeler on friday released a statement saying he opposes allowing passengers to text or chat on cell phones. he also says if it's not a threat to airline safety the fcc can't stop it. if it decides to allow it individual airlines still have the final say. now more on holiday travel as americans hit the roads, the runway and the rails for thanksgiving. aaa predicts 43 million americans will travel this week a slight decrease from 2012. "usa today" travel reporter or teresa jones is here with more on the holiday roads. good morning to you. >> good morning. last year thanksgiving travel was at a four-year high. why is it dipping this year? >> you know, the economy is recovering but it's a slow recovery. so some people are a little skittish about spending money on thanksgiving travel. if you do travel this thanks gig, gas is cheaper than it's
5:18 am
been since 2010. so that's a great thing. >> that's what surprised me. they had a nice drop recently. i thought people would be hitting the roads. >> i think they're a bit lower. it's a lot of extra money to spend on black friday sales and other activities during your holiday. >> when i hear fewer people are traveling, i feel that's the sill is very lining. >> it depends on when you go. rush hour is going to be between 2:00 and 6:00 on wednesday. so you want to leave in the morning. you'll leave after 7:00 that night. or even better leave on thanksgiving day. nobody is on the road. but that depends how far it is to get to grandma's house. >> if you leave early in the morning, it's good. if you leave lunchtime, it's crowded. >> morning is always better i think. >> it's way too early" to talk about christmas. but i'm curious. >> never too early to talk about
5:19 am
christmas. >> what is the forecast travel wise? >> they're expecting travel to be up a little bit. you really need to book your fare now because it will get closer as we get closer to the holiday. consider flying on christmas day to save a little money. look at the nearby airports. >> you normally think the smaller airports will cost you more. >> sometimes they do. you have to shop around a little bit. it's worth it in case you can get the great deal you're looking for. >> any tricks to train travel this week? >> you want to book now because they added extra trains in the northeast corridor oregon the midwest. but they're booking up pretty fast. it's best to go on line and get your ticket that way. and don't take too much luggage because the trains are going to be really full. >> any other tips people respond to? it always feels like the first time in terms of the headaches. you just don't anticipate them. >> keep it simple. wear slip-ones if you're going

6:04 am
december 23rd, giving consumers an extra eight days to enroll for coverage set to begin january 1st. there was another date pushed back. the administration announced next year's open enrollment will begin in october. jay carney was asked about that on friday. >> the idea of pushing back the 2015 schedule by one month has to do with one thing -- several things. it's good for insurers to take into account when setting 2015 rates. >> some republicans say the move is about politics. center chuck grassley of iowa released a statement saying that if premiums go through the roof in the first year of obama care no one will know about it until after the election. of course, he's referring to the midterm election. but the primary -- the priority for the white house, rather right now is for the end of november deadline a week from today. the white house set for those website fixes. >> jeff, thanks.

the u.s. iran and five other nations could be close to a deal on iran's nuclear program. john kerry is in geneva this morning where stumbling blocks in the talks would bring relief to the sanctions. >> reporter: good morning. secretary kerry will now meet with iran's top nuclear negotiator in the first round of substantive talks during the four days of negotiations. even with all the diplomatic firepower in place, there is no guarantee of a deal. the hope is that kerry's personal involvement will help bridge the differences that remain. they're described as narrow at this point. many of the sticking points are just the same. exactly how much access iran will give in exchange for some economic relief from punishing financial sanctions. kerry's very first meeting was with the french foreign minister who has been taking a hard line demanding more access and the shutdown of a nuclear site for any financial relief.
6:06 am
the russian foreign minister also strategized with kerry immediately after that. russia is a friend to iran and iran is asking for more than what is currently offered in the sanctions relief deal that is on the table. now, the deal itself is a six-month confidence-building measure that will likely say iran has the right to a peaceful nuclear program, but they have to prove they're not trying to build weapons and destroy any weapons grade material they may have. we'll see if the deal can be reached this round. for cbs this morning, saturday margaret brennan, geneva. in a quest to preserve the world's historic treasures, it's often the small things that we're able to save. but what about preserving something big and solid. such as a great building or a sculpture the size of mount rushmore. as the december issue of national geographic magazine shows, new technology makes that possible. george johnson is a science writer for national geogrask. george, good morning. >> good morning.
6:07 am
>> where did this idea come about to preserve buildings, make digital copies of them? >> around 2003 remember when the taliban destroyed the buddha statues in afghanistan, and ben casera was shocked by this and realized he had invented the technology that he might be able to promote, to preserve digital replicas of things that are sdoid. if they disappear, they could be conjured up in cyberspace. >> i was fascinated by how they do this. they're essentially taking laser beams and going over every contour of a building and recreating it. is that -- >> yes, a lot like an old-fashioned tv camera where you would scan or electron beam off of every line across the scene, very rapidly. in this case 50,000 times a second you're bouncing a laser beam off the surface and preserving a picture, or replica of the exact contour. >> there's a project here that's
6:08 am
kind of like a noah's arc, if you will accumulating all these buildings and putting them in a place. it's called sci arc, is that right? >> yes, ben casira is his name and it might have something to do with the institution that he started. i like to think of it a cyber kinetic arc. their goal is to do 500 in the next few years. >> you see that process, it would seem like nothing would be too big. it could really preserve whatever they want is that correct? >> yeah. i watched them at an ancient hindu temple that's like a step well, like five stories going down beneath the ground. and intricate, intricate walls of hindu carvings and they were scanning this entire thing. it took two weeks. i watched them do this. and getting it down to a resolution of less than a quarter inch. >> is it an expensive process? >> it's expensive.
6:09 am
and they rely on donations. it's a nonprofit effort. they get government grants they get private foundation money. things like this. >> it will be an amazing blueprint to have. george johnson, thank you so much. >> thank you. it's about 9 after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend. coming up the se krem formula that turns movies like "ironman 3" into blockbuster hits. you're watching cbs saturday morning.

more than 100 musicians gathered in nashville to honor country music star george jones. jones planned the concert before he died last april. it was supposed to be his final appearance. garth brooks was in the star-studded tribute. chris cannon of wtf reports on the concert for the man known as possum to his loyal fans. >> reporter: a concert more than a year in the making. a show that took on new meaning in april when the world lost george jones. friday night the music community came out to remember the
6:14 am
legendary performer. >> it's unbelievable. a night for country music. i'm excited to be part of it. and to hear great performances. and sing my songs. >> reporter: garth and trisha were here, some of the superstar power that picked up a microphone to remember the pos up. >> i think that the community is still kind of processing that don't you? >> we are. >> he wasn't supposed to be gone that soon. >> reporter: george began planning this concert more than a year ago. his wife nancy transformed what he started into this tribute. >> we got letters handwritten from george inviting us to be a part of the thing. and of course it's sad that he's not here with us. >> reporter: make no mistake about it this sold-out concert is a celebration of the man the many called the greatest country singer to ever live. >> we're not here to mourn
6:15 am
george. we all miss him and wish he was still with us. we're really here to celebrate his life and music. you don't see long faces back here. everybody's smiling and happy and glad to be here. >> last night's concert lasted more than four hours. anthony? >> what's the surest way to have a hit movie, album or video game? harvard business school professor said the blockbuster strategy is the path to follow. she's the author of blockbuster hit making risk taking. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> you say it applies to movies tvs, even sports and video games. what exactly is the strategy? >> for the blockbuster strategy it's a strategy in which companies contact producers, film studios, record labels publishers and many others are getting a disproportionate amount on the likely winners. they don't say, let's just see what sticks. they say we're going to decide
6:16 am
which products are going to be successful in the marketplace and we're going to go all in. >> why has it been so successful? >> if you go all in you get everyone else who's involved in the making of these products to go all in too. so retailers will stock it on the shelves, theaters will be really pleased to show these blockbuster movies. so yes, it works in a variety of different ways. >> give me an example of a successful film. >> one example i discuss in the book is the harry potters films,'s all examples of big blockbuster bets. the studio went all in to make them a success. >> has this not been why we have so many sequels? >> i they that's one of the thing we're seeing in the marketplace. if you think about what are the most likely winners we don't have a lot to go on. but we do have something to go on as an executive to say, it
6:17 am
looks a lot like something that happened in the past. you see betting taking place on something that resembles the past. it's not always the case. inception is a movie that looked like nothing that was out there. but also was a blockbuster. >> you give an example of former nbc ceo who deviated from the strategy. what happened? >> disaster happened if you look at the numbers. so he was a person who said we're making too many of these really risky -- he thought it was too risky. he said what we should instead be doing is manage for margins. we should not be swinging for the fences on all of our bets we should be saving costs, maybe not hire very expensive stars, or maybe not go for the most expensive formats. and that -- even though it seemed very safe to do so it was actually the risky strategy. walking away from the blockbuster strategy means the odds of failure go up
6:18 am
tremendously. and ratings fell. he brought the network down from the number one position to the number four position. and margins fell too. so he wasn't successful in his strategy at all. >> is anybody having success working outside of this strategy? >> yes, in the book i provide examples, such as justin bieber and a self-publisher amanda hawking who established a loyal fan base online. what's interesting is at some point they say, there's actually a lot of advantage for me to become part of the existing system. and to align myself with an established book publisher, or established record label. >> there is this argument that going for the blockbuster all the time quashes creativity because people go for the safe bet. >> i hear that all the time. and i think there's something to be said for that argument. but on the other hand, i think the more the producers have a good sense of what is successful and the more they realize this is how we build sustainable businesses, the more there's
6:19 am
room for truly original products as well. i think, for instance, the movie "gravity" wouldn't have been made if warner brothers hadn't been so successful with the harry potter and dark knights. there wasn't a chance they would have $100 million to spend on a movie that was actually quite a risky bet. so on the one hand we're seeing that they are trying to play it safe, because there's so much at stake. but there's always room for the truly original products. >> anita thanks so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you for having me. up next what any cook would love to have for carving a turkey, or slicing almost anything. a hand-crafted knife from brooklyn. you'll meet the guy who makes them. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

still crafted entirely by hand and they're coveted by chefs around the world. our terrell brown found a modern knife maker right here in new york city. >> good morning to you. joel is one of only about 15 people that can make top-shelf kitchen knives by hand and it turns out the people who want them are willing to pay top dollar. >> there's something that it gives me that nothing else does. >> reporter: not everyone sees sparks fly just talking about what they do for a living. >> i think that making a tangible thing rewards me sort of gives back to me in a very acute way. >> reporter: joel is one of them. >> i make and sell hand-made kitchen knives. from chef's knives to butchering knives. think of a kid in high school they talk about, think about what they want to do when they get older. this isn't one of those things that immediately come to mind. >> i was on the college track.
6:24 am
i went to graduate school where i met my wife and we got msas in fiction writing. >> reporter: but failing to sell a novel and failing to complete a second he found solis in the material. >> on the surface it seems very very different. one is seemingly chaotic and violent and you've got sparks and all this stuff. writing, to me it's the hardest thing that i've ever done. so hard. >> reporter: he said he was hooked on knife-making from the beginning. >> i think it was making something that i knew would be useful. i just kept chasing it. i made another and another. that was it. >> reporter: he learned the craft by reading books and joining online forums with other craftsmen. >> there are a handful of very simple steps. and it's a matter of mastering those steps and sort of you know, learning to get really good at a handful of things. and getting in your shop and trying not to lose a finger or something like that, you know. like that's kind of it. >> reporter: ten years later he has his own studio, and two
6:25 am
assistants. they make about nine different styles of knives by hand. if i want a knife from you, or set of knives how much am i going to pay? >> it depends on what kind of knife you want. but anywhere from say, a small paring size knife, $350. >> $350? >> up to $600 for a chef's knife. >> is it hard to sell a $600 knife? >> not for me, i guess. what i do is, we're open two days a work and folks come in during our shop hours. whatever doesn't end up walking out our doors, i take a photograph of it and put it front and center on my website. usually they're gone within a couple hours. >> reporter: professional chefs and avid cooks are willing to pay top dollar to get a handmade knife that just a small handful of people are able to make. >> there's like a moment and hopefully you'll feel it when you cut and go, wow. wow.
6:26 am
>> reporter: like a true artisan, he controls his designs. for the most part he does not take custom orders. >> i make the stuff that i'm excited about making. at any point in time that i feel i want to make. and i put them out there into the world for people to purchase. if they purchase them great. >> reporter: you seem like you're doing a pretty good job. >> it's working out okay. >> he feels fortunate to be able what he says to be at the intersection of food and craft. he gets chefs from all over the world who come to new york just because they've heard about his knives. >> he's kind of an artist. >> how paper thin that was. >> you could literally see through it. >> the sharper the knife, the safer it is. >> not in my place. coming up when the stars come out, he's right there with them. for 60 years douglas kirkland has been the top photographer in

6:28 am
called me. >> let's talk about the stars of this film. i mean george clooney, and sandra bullock. people are talking about oscars that it's their best film for both of them. they're incredibly accomplished actors. >> you have sandra and george. you won't have bad reviews. it's like shooting pandas. you don't do that. >> so that hepgs. >> that helps, yeah. >> talk about where you think it expanded george clooney's range, for instance. he's been in a lot of great movies. >> yeah. but i think that he's great in every single film. when you're working with george you're not working only with an amazing actor. you're working with an amazing writer, and an amazing director. and a guy who's so generous he's very quiet, very respectful. but the moment that you sense a hesitating, he's there to help you.

6:32 am
pneumonia. >> how did you convince her to take the shots? >> i'll be honest with you here today. i said to elizabeth, i stay in the shadows as a journalist interviewed her. i reached out after and said very nice to meet you, elizabeth. she always wanted to be called elizabeth. my name is douglas kirkland. i'm now with this magazine. can you imagine what it would mean to me to give you an opportunity to photograph you. she said no pictures. what happened is she thought for a moment and said okay. come tomorrow night. >> you flattered her. >> that's what started my career. >> i want to ask you even in the pictures we saw of elizabeth taylor, there's a scar on her neck. >> yes. that was a scar from the double pneumonia she had when they first tried to shoot cleopatra in england. she said i wear this as a badge of honor. now, later she had it removed. but she wanted it to be quite evident there. >> when you look at your body of

6:34 am
century fox in los angeles where i live i look down just as you turn in i look down and see -- i still see that up there. that's a nice feeling after all these years. >> do you ever have a favorite picture? >> a favorite picture? well i'll tell you my favorite picture. it's a picture of audrey hepburn. it's one of the first pictures in the book. there it is. you know playful. it was very nice. i met my wife when i was working with audrey in paris. and i was -- she happened to come up to the studio to see her mother who was working on the movie. it was really audrey that brought us together. audrey was photographed on many occasions. including one of her last films with sean connery. and that was shot in spain. in any case that is my favorite picture of all of them. that picture of audrey playing and flirting. it was very simple. i had her in front of the lens
6:35 am
and i said come on audrey just play a little. and she did it. sometimes it happens quickly. sometimes you do a lot of plans. you have to know when it's time to reroute those plans. >> they give you something. >> bridget bardot. i started working on a film called viva maria in mexico. >> we want to remind people the name of the book so they can see all of those images "a life in picture: douglas kirkland." >> thank you. it's been quite a life for me. the publisher is heavy idea. >> for a final look at the weather for your weekend.

bit. i stuff a bunch of butter up under the skin and fresh herbs of the rosemary thyme, sage under the skin. the secret to a moist bird is basting it every three minutes. the stuffing's kind of started with my grandmother's stuffing recipe. but i started using raisin fenel bread. dressing and stuffing i kind of do both. carrots, and brussels sprouts and bacon. more important than the food what food does especially thanksgiving, you think about bringing people around the table. i think that's missing too much from our life noticewadays. when i was growing up i had to be at the table every night. even with my kids we try to do at least once a week. i think that's really missing. >> first i want to ask you about this. this is really interesting
6:41 am
looking. >> this is -- i judged a drink contest with a gym, they asked me to sit in and judge. this didn't win, but i thought this was the most interesting of all the drinks. this is a beet and gin cocktail. pureeed beets, and the bombay gin. it's perfect for this time of the year. >> tell us about your background. you've obviously been in kitchens for years. was it your father's suggestion your mother grandmother? >> you know i cooked -- i started cooking at home when i was 12 or 13 years old. when i was 15 my father suggested i become a chef. it was the only times i listened to him growing up i think. but yeah he -- he did a great job, i think, with his three children. i'm one of three boys. and we all just found things we love to do. my younger brother is a basketball coach. and we always knew from a young
6:42 am
age that he wand to do that. >> you started as a short-order cook. >> i did. i started as a short-order cook at a swim club. and from there, just loved it. just found that i was pretty good at it. and just stuck with it. right out of high school started working in kitchens and never looked back. >> you read that you said working in a kitchen is like conducting an orchestra, being a top chef. >> people ask all the time do you still cook? well, a little secret chefs don't really do the day-to-day cooking. it's our recipes and the way we run our kitchens. if you go see a piece of classical music, the composer is most likely long gone. but who gets top billing? the conductor. you expect the conductor to jump down in the pit and pick up a violin and start playing. that's what we do in the kitchen, we conduct. >> you have eight restaurants now. >> the secret to having multiple restaurants is you have to check your ego at the door. if you think you're the only person that can do that you'll
6:43 am
only have one restaurant. >> it's fascinateing you never went to culinary school. you were self-taught. >> i was taught by many many different chefs. my first big job in new york was the quilted giraffe back in 1984. i worked with chefs at goff and thomas keller when he was way before the french laundry and perse. so i've worked under a lot of great chefs. >> what's the secret to being a great chef? >> the secret is i think, learn the basics learn the techniques and methods and find your own way. you can't imitate. the other thing, if you put someone on a pedestal you set your limit. so at a very early age i looked at everybody as my peers, and decided if -- you'll never reach sort of as far as the person on the pedestal. >> we can't thank you enough for coming. we have to ask you if you would share this meal with anyone who would it be? >> i watched a lot of the
