He is a family man and community-driven. On the Favorite Chef site, Nick says why he is doing this.,

To set an example for my children and the talented people in crazy industry. We live once make sure to work hard, take risks and eat well.

How Long have you been cooking?

I have been working in restaurants for 20 years. I found my passion for food and decided to pursue it professionally 14 years ago before enrolling in culinary school. My cooking is a direct reflection of who I am and I love bringing people together and showing them that I care about them through food. #veggieking

What is your favorite signature dish?

My food is inspired by global influences, seasonal produce and our hardworking farmers, growers and makers.There are too many reoccurring favorite dishes throughout the year to choose one! Warm farmed and foraged spring vegetables with soft boiled farm egg and banyuls vinegar, BMB sourdough toast with heirloom tomatoes, Farmers cheese and green olive salsa verde,Spanish octopus with winter squash hummus, Merguez sausage and Gammelgarden Yogurt

What will you do if you win the $50,000?

I will make a donation to a local family in need and invest it into my 3 children’s future.
