Q&A with Max Kramer ("MasterChef"):

Who was your first cooking inspiration?

My first cooking inspirations were my mother and father. Both had their own unique styles, so I tried to fuse them together into my own, ultimately graduating to being a competitor.

What is the first dish you ever mastered?

Filet mignon with white truffle macaroni.

What is your favorite thing to cook?

Anything from the ocean. No matter if you have the same fish twice, it will never be quite the same.

What did you learn as a contestant on "MasterChef"?

I learned to work on a team and how to manage my time under stress, which is most important to me.
