    FITN: David Chang Wins Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

    January 20, 2021 – In this episode of Food in the news, we discuss David Chang, the founder of Momofuku, winning Who Wants to be a Millionaire and donating the $1 million dollar grand prize to a worthy foundation.

    We know the restaurant service industry has been hit hard by this pandemic. David Chang’s focus was to donate his winnings to the Southern Smoke Foundation, which is a crisis relief foundation for people in the food and beverage industry.

    What was the final question?

    “Although he and his wife never toughed a light switch for fear of being shocked, who was the first president to have electricity in the White House?”

    His final and correct answer: “Benjamin Harrison”

    Congrats to David and the Southern Smoke Foundation!

    S2 EP 1: Our Tribute to Anthony Bourdain

    In today’s episode of Tips Appreciated, we’ll be discussing Anthony Bourdain – his life, his works, and his legacy.   

    To say that Anthony Bourdain was an iconic figure would be an understatement. More than that, though, his legacy isn’t limited to just the industries that he worked in; rather, he inspired people of all ages, of all backgrounds, and from all walks of life.   

    But how exactly did he become this extraordinary, larger than life man?  

    We wanted to learn more about him and wanted to hear his life story, so we did some research on things that shaped him into the person he is and the legacy he created.
