When asked about what the promotion meant to her, George replied with excitement and said, “I am very proud and honoured and I am going to do my best to set an example for the young Chefs so that they understand the importance of hard work and dedication.” George is admired and highly respected by her colleagues who say that she is the heart of their kitchen.
