    Monday 3/4 Talented Author & Chef Brigit Binns Opens Up Big with Her Memoir Rottenkid: A Succulent Story of Survival

    Monday 3/4 Talented Author & Chef Brigit Binns Opens Up Big with Her Memoir Rottenkid: A Succulent Story of Survival

    We talk to Chef and Author Brigit Binns on today’s show. Brigit is an accomplished and talented author and chef who has written dozens of cook books for everyone from Williams Sonoma, Sunset Magazine, to Weber Grills. For the first time she turns the focus on her  own fascinating story with her memoir, Rottenkid: A Succulent Story of Survival which is released tomorrow!A memoir sauteed in Hollywood stories, world travel, and always, the need to belongProlific cookbook author Brigit Binns’ coming-of-age memoir—co-starring her alcoholic actor father Edward Binns and glamorous but viciously smart narcissistic mother—reveals how simultaneous privilege and profound neglect lead Brigit to seek comfort in the kitchen, eventually allowing her to find some sense of self-worth. In the old Hollywood of her childhood, Brigit seems to live in an elite world. But when her parents eventually divorce—her father flees and her mother sends her off to boarding school so she can more easily conduct her decades-long romance with a married California governor—Brigit racks up seven schools and a host of bad decisions before the age of 16. Marriage to an Englishman takes her across the pond and to professional cooking school. But when that life comes crashing down, she returns heartbroken and alone to Los Angeles eighteen years after vowing never to return. Here she thrives, cold pitching herself to top chefs as co author for their cookbooks. Peppered with humor and seasoned with optimism, Brigit’s story is an entertaining tribute to female resilience.Win a FREE SIGNED COPY of Rottenkid HERE (https://adammontiel.com/connect) (write rottenkid in the message field)Visit Brigit's website HERE (https://www.brigitbinns.com/)Amazon link to book HERE (https://www.amazon.com/Rottenkid-Succulent-Survival-Brigit-Binns/dp/1960573993)Subscribe to Brigit’s Substack HERE (https://rottenkid.substack.com/)************Jewel is coming in concert Sat April 6! Tickets and info to PACSLO's Jewel concert HERE (https://www.pacslo.org/events/detail/jewel24?utm_medium=email&elq_cid=62684&RSRC=Email&RDAT=423&ehash=26b08a96d6fec4bcf50a075de3181b6ad8de5c289b0f6f3cbbbacb5a25d24335)***********The Pour debuted its first episode and its own page - Please follow and support.

Adam Brings It Every Morning

"Up and Adam" is a great way to start the morning living. Adam brings his years of broadcast experience to the podcast space and I appreciate his personable interview. Conversations are like listening to friends catching up. Whether he's exploring local events, discussing global issues, or just sharing stories from his life, Adam keeps it real and he’s a staple of the Central Coast of California community.

Robin’s News and Reviews! ,

The ONLY place for the Central Coast News we need!

Up and Adam is by far the best talk news to listen to for up to date stories you want to hear for the Central Coast and beyond. No one gets the scoop like Adam and no one knows more of the local folks ready to jump into the conversation. Make sure you subscribe for all the latest from the man on the mic, Adam Montiel!

Adam is amazing!

Love this podcast for so many reasons! Adam’s voice is made for broadcasting and he is truly an expert at listening so intently to each and every person that he interacts with. His questions are deep and relevant to each topic and his uncanny sense of humor is right on target every time.

Adam is deeply in love with SLO and, of course, The Lady He Fancies. His dedication to his home base and the countless numbers of people there who’s lives he touches every day, is displayed consistently in his multiple podcasts and the well deserved promotion of the greater SLO communities.
