Lynch said to Samuelson “of course,” but things weren’t quite realistic for Lynch until he received an email from Anna Wintour.
Lynch says he is honored to be selected for the Met Gala dish. “It was very legitimate for me and my work, and my voice in the industry. I just work with my head down. What happens to me all the time because of the work I’m doing I’m not thinking about it, so it was really reasonable, “he explains.

Lynch’s cooking is heavily influenced by his culture and upbringing. His Monica “Son of the Southern Chef” refers to his father, musician, chef and restaurant owner from Alabama.
“I’m making one of the canapes, and it was inspired by my grandmother I didn’t know, but I knew she was cooking through her father … A kind of her DNA passed me through food … everything is a plant-based vegan.
