Well, it's Thanksgiving, and since we're gathering together this week for quality time and quality food, it's the perfect chance for us to learn some leadership lessons from my favorite chef, Edward Lee.  You know, when people come to visit us here in Louisville and they ask where they should eat, I always recommend Edward Lee's restaurant 620 Magnolia. His food is incredible and I gotta say, his carrot cake is absolutely out of this world. On top of being a successful restaurateur, he's also competed on Top Chef, written two wonderful books, and has even been nominated for an Emmy! Really, he's built a thriving career in an industry that can be pretty cutthroat – and he's done it by showing people how much they matter. When he prepares a dish, when he's talking to his staff, he treats every single person as an individual. People matter, and when you can show YOUR people that they matter to you, well, that's the hallmark of a great leader. Keep listening to see how it's done.  So here is my conversation with my good friend – and soon to be yours – Edward Lee.

We speak to Michelin Star Chef Adam Handling about food waste, sustainability in restaurants and cooking for the G7! ABOUT ADAM HANDLINGMichelin-starred Chef Adam Handling started out at Gleneagles 16 years ago where he was the first ever apprentice chef, before he went on to become Fairmont's youngest ever Head Chef. Adam has a number of impressive awards under his belt, including Scottish Chef of the Year, British Culinary Federation's Chef of the Year, Chef of the Year in the Food & Travel Awards. Adam was (and still is) the youngest person to be one of the Caterer's ‘30 under 30 to watch' in the 2013 Acorn Awards. Voted for by both the public and a selection of esteemed industry judges, Adam was named Restaurateur of the Year in the British GQ Food and Drink Awards 2020, before earning his first Michelin star at his flagship restaurant, Frog by Adam Handling, in 2022.Passionate about the best quality British ingredients and sustainability, Adam's beautifully presented dishes start with careful sourcing of top quality, seasonal ingredients, prepared in a number of different, creative ways to bring their true flavour to life.In 2016, Adam was keen to shake up the restaurant scene and he did just that with The Frog E1. Adam's first restaurant, located in the Old Truman Brewery, was one of the first of its kind in London that offered high quality small plates and tasting menus in a cool and casual environment. The focus was on the 4 pillars that Adam deems make a successful restaurant – food, drink, art and music.In September 2017, Adam opened his flagship restaurant and bar, Frog by Adam Handling and Eve Bar in Covent Garden. The restaurant has been heralded as a “smash hit” by the London Evening Standard and one of the “best restaurants in London right now” by Condé Nast Traveller. Frog by Adam Handling has won ‘Best Newcomer Restaurant' in the 2018 Food & Travel Reader Awards, was voted ‘Best Overall Wine List' at the 2019 Wine List Confidential awards and ‘Cocktail List of the Year' at the National Restaurant Awards 2019. Frog by Adam Handling was awarded its first Michelin Star in February 2022. Eve Bar was awarded ‘Cocktail List of the Year' at the 2019 National Restaurant Awards.In May 2021 Adam opened his first ever venue outside of London and his first-ever pub - The Loch & The Tyne, a restaurant, pub, and rooms in the countryside of Old Windsor. Adam intends to make this one of the most sustainable pubs in the UK, complete with luxury bedrooms for overnight guests. Everything about The Loch & The Tyne is rooted in ‘Sustainable British luxury', with exceptional attention to detail in every corner and truly personal touches throughout. The venue is the perfect countryside location for weddings, private events, and country getaways. In another first for Adam, he has named two of his chefs as Co-Chef Proprietors. Steven Kerr, his Group Executive Chef, and Jonny McNeil, Head Chef at Adam Handling Chelsea, have taken up the reins as an opportunity to showcase the skills they have learnt during their time with Adam. In fact, the name of the pub is representative of where Adam first met both Steven and Jonny - 2008 in Newcastle and 2010 in St Andrews. The Loch & The Tyne was included in The Sunday Times ‘Best Places to Stay' list 2021, awarded Highest New Entry (no. 27) in the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropub Awards 2022, and has recently been awarded 5-stars from the AA.The latest opening for the Adam Handling Restaurant Group is Ugly Butterfly, which is chef Adam's most sustainable brand of restaurants, which launched at the luxurious Carbis Bay Estate on August 2nd 2021, offering British food, inspired by Cornwall.

Will Guidara is the former co-owner of Eleven Madison Park and the NoMad, and is the cofounder of the Welcome Conference, an annual hospitality symposium. In 2017, Eleven Madison Park was voted the world's best restaurant by The World's 50 Best Restaurants annual ranking.  He has coauthored four cookbooks, was named one of Crain's New York Business's 40 Under 40, and is a recipient of WSJ Magazine's Innovator Award. His new book is called Unreasonable Hospitality: The Remarkable Power of Giving People More Than They Expect.   Some interesting insights from this episode: Unreasonable hospitality is being just as relentless, as focused, as intentional in your pursuit of how you make people feel as you are with every other facet of what you do for a living. One of our most deeply held needs as human beings is we want to feel known and seen. One of Will's favorite quotes that speaks to hospitality is one from Maya Angelou: “People will forget what you say. They'll forget what you do. But they'll never forget how you made them feel.” “If you don't understand the importance of your work, the nobility of what you put out into the world every day, it's very hard to be the best version of yourself consistently.” He has kept a paperweight on his desk since he was a child which reads: “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?” If you don't have the confidence and conviction to answer it honestly, it's unlikely you'll ever achieve it. Whenever you're leading a group of people, it's one thing to have a good idea. It's meaningless if you can't convey that idea to your team such that you're all moving in unison and in the same direction. It's important to be both “restaurant smart” and “corporate smart”. That is, balancing what's best for the guests with what's best for the bottom line.

Rachel Miller first fell in love with cooking while working at a small restaurant on the coast of Virginia, where she's from. It was there that she discovered the sensory impact of terroir, since the restaurant sourced ingredients from nearby farms and local fishermen. She also discovered a love for butchering and charcuterie, which quickly propelled her to move to Boston to pursue an entry level butchering job at Lionetti's in the South End. Over the next 12 years, Rachel studied and cooked every day working her way up in some of the best kitchens in Boston, most notably as Chef de Cuisine at Clio, Ken Oringer's flagship restaurant. Prior to Clio, she was named one of Zagat's 30 Under 30: Boston's Hottest Up and Comers, as Executive Sous Chef at Bondir. Once Rachel ran out of opportunities operating other chef's kitchens she decided to move forward and open her own restaurant. For over 2.5 years she worked as a private chef and booked Nightshade Pop Up dinners in and around Boston and the North Shore, learning and growing into her own style. In October of 2019 she opened her first baby, Nightshade Noodle Bar in downtown Lynn, MA where she lives and can be found cooking on the line every night. Follow Rachel for a glimpse from behind the scenes of the Nightshade Noodle Bar kitchen and her next project, Sin City Superette, next door.

The Human Trial is a documentary from filmmakers Lisa Hepner and Guy Mossman that follows a human clinical trial using embryonic stem cells over the course of seven years as researchers and patient volunteers work on a cure for type 1 diabetes. The filmmakers gained unprecedented access to the San Diego biotech start-up ViaCyte which has developed an implantable pouch that holds stem cells programmed to create the kind of insulin-producing pancreatic islet cells destroyed by type 1 diabetes. It is considered one of the most promising paths to a functional cure for the disease.During this podcast, Lisa Hepner, who has type 1 diabetes, discusses what she learned during the filming of the documentary. She talks about the process of gaining the trust of both researchers and patients as they experience elation and disappointment.

Join Susan as she interviews Inez Ribustello, the former Assistant Cellar Master at the World Trade Center restaurant “Windows on the World” during the time of the 9-11 terror attacks.   Fortunately for Inez, she happened to be on vacation in North Carolina when the towers came down.  Her soon-to-be husband also worked in the World Trade Center, but happened to be off that day as well.  While her life and her future husband's life was spared, she lost friends, colleagues and her job that day.  She also lost her innocence and rose-colored glass view of the world. The tragedy was a catalyst that moved her into a new direction.  She ultimately moved back to North Carolina where she and her fiancé opened “On the Square”, a restaurant, wine bar and retail store.  The wine list at On the Square holds the prestigious Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator. Her next big venture was Tarboro Brewing Company, a microbrewery that started brewing in February of 2016. Almost a year later, she and her husband opened a satellite taproom serving tacos in the Rocky Mount Mills. In September of 2021, Inez self-published her memoir Life After Windows.  In 2009, Inez placed 2nd runner-up in the Best Sommelier in America competition held in New York City. She is a member of the Alumni Hall of Fame for the Institute of Culinary Education and a graduate of the Court of Master Sommelier's Advanced Exam.
