    As the restaurant world confronts what it means to be sustainable from a human perspective, some chefs are realizing they need to first answer that question for themselves. For Ashley Christensen, the award-winning chef and proprietor behind AC Restaurants in Raleigh, North Carolina, that meant putting herself on the road to sobriety. In October, Ashley announced her decision via an Instagram post. Not only did many in her community rally around her, but those dealing with similar journeys reached out to share their stories and encouragement.Ashley joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about her decision and what it's meant to her personally and professionally. She also shares an update on her hospitality group, which today includes an events company, a commissary kitchen, and five restaurants. Her first spot, Poole's Diner, just turned 15 in December.

    Illyanna Maisonet might be the first cookbook author who got her start posting Yelp reviews. She was a working artist when the financial crisis of 2008 sent her down a new path; it took a combination of culinary school, back issues of Gourmet magazine, and Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential to help her discover a new calling. The Yelp reviews? Well, they helped boost her confidence as an aspiring writer. Illyanna went on to become the first Puerto Rican food columnist in the U.S., yet a deal to write a cookbook on the country's cuisine eluded her. Not even the high-profile support of José Andrés seemed to make a difference. Illyanna persevered and Diasporican: A Puerto Rican Cookbook was published this fall. The author joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about the journey, the most special recipes in Diasporican, her Burlap & Barrel Adobo & Sazón spice collaboration, and more.
