Despite being full, we headed back to Times Square to meet Anthony Hoy Fong, a celebrity chef from Auckland, who is successful in New York and the US. He manages many projects, like TV shows, judges, developed an online Culinary School, and he is the 'go to ' person if you want to start up a restaurant business. His last development was in Las Vegas. Anthony spoke to the group about following their passion and to work hard and stay humble. He was very surprised that schools offered these trips. He only remembered going as far as Hamilton with his school! He said that opportunities like these should be grabbed with 2 hands, as he remembers when he was asked to cook for President Obama, that he was still waiting for his working visa to be renewed, however putting his fear aside (of Security taking him back to the airport) he cooked for the President and many times after. During our 2hr visit, we were treated to a massive feed of fries, buffalo wings, nachoes and pork sliders and unlimited glasses of fizzy. Moving on, the students shopped for an hour or so and we met for dessert at Junior's Cheesecake. We shared different desserts and milkshakes, before rolling home by 7pm
Thumbs up for the day!!
