Episode Summary

Episode Notes

It’s our sincere honor to welcome Jacques Pepin back for his third appearance on the pod. Last Friday, Andrew ventured north to Connecticut to Jacques’ home, where they discussed the genesis of Jacques’ latest book, Art of the Chicken: A Master Chef's Paintings, Stories, and Recipes of the Humble Bird, just published this week. The book is a charming and compelling mingling of biographical essays, recipes, and Jacques’ original artwork, all of which provided wonderful stepping off points for myriad topics of conversation.

And in this week's Tech and Restaurants segment, brought to you by BentoBox and Clover, friend of the pod chef Erick Williams of Chicago's Virtue and the recently launched Daisy's Po-Boy and Tavern shares what he's learned about customizing websites to reflect the distinct characters of the restaurants they represent. Please visit the website for BentoBox and Clover to learn how they provide restaurants with the technology they need for even more success, and book a demo today.
