For the last four years, I’ve been able to travel throughout the country, meeting people and hearing their personal stories, and sharing my own. I’ve witnessed the history of artisan food in Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market, the artistic sensibility of Austin restauranteurs, and the budding food scene in Oakland, California. I’ve met with chefs, readers, fans, and cooks who all celebrate food and culture in their own ways, and want to share what they’re doing.

What’s become clear is that food is a lifeblood to all communities, and it’s been how I’ve been able to connect with everyone across cultures. Making and enjoying food is practicing our culture with family and friends, but it’s communicating it with everyone . Like great music, great food doesn’t have barriers between people. Read More

I can’t begin to describe how much of a good time I had at this year’s inaugural Austin Food & Wine Festival. The awesome food, music, and Texas characters were great to be a part of. One of my favorite aspects was also seeing Food Republic there in their W Austin test kitchen and interview lounge.  They caught up with some of my good friends, like Andrew Zimmern and Tim Love.

I even sat down with Tim for an extended talk about BBQ, food cultures, and traditions in our restaurants. Check out the video of our interview below and for more Austin Food & Wine Festival coverage, check out Food Republic here. Read More
