Blais-ing the trail for food podcasts
So excited about this new podcast! The so-called gossipy safe place inside "the walk in" is a great scene setter for the debut episode!
Blais brings his upbeat personality and quick wit along with his passion for talking all things food. From first food jobs to his columnist days under Besha Rodell, his first esteemed guest!
Rodell shared fun inside stories from her years as a restaurant critic and food writer to her humble beginnings as a barista.
Unexpected gem: Rodell worked at an Albania mafia café. Listen to find out more!!
This is a fresh, unique approach to a food podcast and I eagerly await future episodes. Podcast pitch: Live session on GMA in New York perhaps?!
Since his first appearance on Top Chef, I've enjoyed following Blaise's career. Energy, enthusiasm, wit, wisdom, and a touch of neurosis (in the very best way) make for a winning combination on this podcast. I'm not a foodie (can we 86 that word!?) but I enjoy meaningful food and authentic service and engaging conversation. We get all three, albeit digitally, here. Thank you, chef.
More food podcasts!!
There aren't enough food podcasts and this one really seems to get into the burgeoning food scene, food celebrities and restaurant life. More please!
