Wrath - What makes you angry about the hospitality industry?
Josh Eggleton Seven Sins
The lack of people coming into it, it’s a great trade to work in. I also think the government could help support the industry more.
 
Greed - If all your food fantasies came true what would be on your Plate?

You can’t eat everything at once, but I would love a hot and cold shellfish platter.
 
Sloth - What do you do to unwind?
Josh Eggleton Seven Sins
Watch Star Trek!
 
Pride - What are you most proud of?

I want to work forever; if you can get everything done in your lifetime then you’re not achieving enough.
