What's your desert island food and why?
"Burgers. It is the perfect food that involves all texture sensations, and can be adapted to any flavor profile. There is nothing more satisfying than a burger."
What's your favorite condiment and why?
"Kewpie Mayonnaise. It's creamy, it's tangy, it's incredible on its own or mixed with virtually any other condiment to make a richer, superior version of original condiment. It transforms everything it touches to the next level. BLT? Cool. Kewpie BLT? MARRY ME."
