Ris Pastry Sous Chef Rory Kraus On His Coming-Out Tattoo
- "You have to climb a ladder in your life to be a star, so I thought itâ€™d be funny if I made it a ladder of stars climbing up my side."
- "I grew up in a Catholic, but Jesus walking water never did for me. Iâ€™m not knocking anyoneâ€™s belief; to each their own. Iâ€™ve gone a more spiritual route, so Iâ€™m more interested in Greek and Roman mythology and pagan traditions."
- A close-up on Pan.
- "Someday it will connect to the ladder of stars, which will mean that Iâ€™ve achieved my career goals â€“ owning my own bakeshop or being the lead pastry chef at a booming restaurant."
- "Itâ€™s the Sanskrit letter for the peaceful sound at the beginning of the world that you say when you meditate."
