This is part two of my interview with Pete Marczyk; read part one of Pete Marczyk's interview

Rules of conduct in your kitchen: Show up; try hard; think; keep making it better; and no squirreling around.

What's never in your kitchen? Fake shit. We start all of our recipes from scratch using real food ingredients, which is something we take really seriously. Ours is probably one of the only kitchens in which we try to raise our food costs. There's also no heavy metal or loud music -- I can't think if it's playing, and, more to the point, it makes me want to kill someone.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
