    Nicholas Forte - Pastry chef Episode 14

    Nicholas Forte is the corporate pastry chef for Tao Group - west coast. What drew me to Nick's story is that straight out of pastry school he went to the only 3-Michelin-star restaurant in the state of Nevada, and said, "I want to work here." He got the job at Joel Robuchon. You can see examples of Nick's work on his Instagram account. https://www.instagram.com/fortenj/

Outstanding podcast

Everyone was bummed when GWAE came to an end, but it was to be expected. Its a pleasant surprise to have Richard Munchkin come back and provide us with another phenomenal podcast about taking risk.
