What do you do when you can’t taste but you also happen to the head chef of one of the best restaurants in the world? Well I reckon most people would weep and crumble into a million pieces or collapse into a blackhole or something. Not Grant Achatz though. Devoid of taste buds because of radiation therapy for tongue cancer, he kept at it, using his sense of smell to guide him. At present, he has been declared cancer free. I have a whole new level of profound respect for the man right now.
