Sherrod, who is African-American, had started working in the kitchen there when he was 13, after his father had a heart attack.<p>"My mother said, 'You can't go back to school. You're going to have to find a job.' So I went to the country club."<p>Sherrod's friends thought he was crazy when he decided he would become a chef, he recalls during a visit to StoryCorps.
