One of my favorite food podcasts
I have listened to every episode and eagerly await each new one every week. Andrew has an engaging interview style that gets his subjects to open up. One of the most important things I have learned from this podcast is that fundamentally, chefs and other people in the hospitality industry are just ordinary human beings with a passion, and they are not so different from the rest of us.
Helping me fight imposter syndrome
I found your show 4 months after opening my own plant based
restaurant in Salt Lake City. I have struggled to feel like a chef and have felt like an imposter each time I am referred to as one. Through listening to this show I have found the struggles of the first few years are not rare and that it is hard starting for nearly everyone. I feel more confident in my role with each episode I listen to. I started on episode one and am listening to them in order.
Thank you for your show and all that it does for the food industry
