    Chef Brian is someone who we have been very excited to talk to ever since he took over the Executive Chef in the middle of the pandemic. He talks in the interview about growing up in Florida, his love for football, when he knew he wanted to be a chef, and why. He also walks us through the journey to get to where he is now. We also talk about the Catbird Seat, which celebrity he asked for an autograph, and why it is not cool to say you have an "allergy" when you simply don't like an ingredient. This is our last new interview for 2021, and we could not have asked to go out on a better note. Thank you Chef Brian for your time, and honesty.

    In preparation for the upcoming episode with Nathan Gifford we are re releasing his interview from 4-12-20. This is a raw episode, recorded from a cell phone on speaker into a microphone, the sound is not great and I have no visual, but I think we had one hell of an interview. We go super in depth about his life, and we talk about the current climate we were both in while in quarantine. I found it super interesting to hear what we were talking about and I think we were actually spot on. I hope you enjoy this, and stay tuned for the all new episode in 2 days!!
