Podcast with an Amazing Perspective

This podcast showcases people without the typical career in the culinary world. We are multifaceted! The podcast shares stories & backgrounds of people in careers I never thought of. Thank you Chris for opening my eyes and putting this perspective out to the world.

GREAT SHOW GREAT INTERVIEWER !

Chris is a star at networking, I’ve been a following fan of his way before he started his podcast because of this. It’s a great outlet and platform he has created by condensing great conversations for all types of food industry folk. Chris is a great conversationist and keep the vibe organic and flowing. I definitely recommend subscribing and listening! Cheers.
