Embracing my heritage

A post shared by Flynn McGarry (@diningwithflynn) on

Flynn's mother realised quite early on that his interest in cooking was something to be nurtured, and by the age of 13 he was home schooled to allow him to fully commit to cooking and start working in restaurants.

That decision has definitely paid off - Flynn has since been named one of Time Magazine's most influential teens and has been having great success with the 12-15 course tasting menus he creates in his Manhattan restaurant 'Gem'.
