We gathered ten favorite Andrew Talks to Chefs moments from 2019 for a fast-moving, pod year-in-review episode to close out the decade. Tom Colicchio recounts the origins of Top Chef; New Orleans’s Kelly Fields shares the hidden meaning in her restaurant Willa Jean’s chocolate chip cookie; pastry legend Claudia Fleming recounts her migration from dancing to cooking; Inn at Little Washington’s Patrick O’Connell shares the methods he and his team employ to make every guest happy; Preeti Mistry discusses her roots as a theater kid; Kwame Onwuachi talks about the mission of his book Notes from a Young Black Chef;LA’S Genevieve Gergis and Andrew unpack their respective struggles with ADD; and we revisit a conversation with the late Anthony Bourdain … these and other moments jumped out at us as we thought over the last 12 months, and we wanted to share them in one place before turning the page to 2020.
If you want to turn a friend on to Andrew Talks to Chefs, this is the episode to share.
Thanks for listening in 2019 and Happy New Year.
