As more chefs and bakers transition to owning several restaurants and bakeries, there's an obvious and necessary shift in their day-to-day roles. Elbows sink deeper in the metaphorical mess of a successful business, and less and less into the beloved tubs of flour, tomato sauce, animal fat, and such.

This month's Ask Nancy Silverton video highlights such challenges in a shift in creativity, as well as the simple, sad truth: we can only be in one place at one time.
