Top Chef Eric Ripert's Life Advice for Young Entrepreneurs

4 min read

Eric Ripert, a three-starred Michelin chef at the top of his game and part-owner of New York City's Le Bernardin, says he has behaved in ways he's not proud of, but he doesn’t regret his mistakes.

“Life is about learning," he says, "and maybe if I didn’t make the mistakes, I would have never known.”

The recipient of France’s Legion of Honor is open about his past struggles with being intolerant and insecure in the kitchen, as well as his revelatory transformation through his practice of Buddhism.

“Being yourself is very important,” he says. “And being secure. It's very important to have a vision of where you want to go, what you want to achieve and create a team that is loyal.”
