On this week’s podcast I have Matthew Jennings. He is a chef/consultant, and VP of Culinary at Healthy Living Market & Café in Vermont. He is also the founder of Full Heart Hospitality which he runs with Jason Rose. 

Previously, Matt was the chef and owner of Farmstead restaurant and cheese shop in Providence, before moving to Boston, and opening Townsman restaurant. He’s the author of the 2017 cookbook Homegrown, and has been nominated for a number of James Beard awards.

Our conversation revolves around his decision to leave the restaurant, and move into consulting, and his new role at Healthy Living Market. You can also get a little more info on his next project, Red Barn Kitchen, which he’ll be starting with his wife Kate.

The Chefs Without Restaurants Podcast – Episode 56 Brandon Baltzley – Leaving the Restaurant Industry for a Career in Fitness and Nutrition

The Chefs Without Restaurants Podcast – Episode 56  Brandon Baltzley - Leaving the Restaurant Industry for a Career in Fitness and Nutrition

You can listen to the show on BuzzsproutITunesSpotifyTuneInStitcherPandora and I Heart Radio.

On this podcast I have Brandon Baltzley. Brandon is the owner of Brandon Baltzley Fitness & Nutrition, as well as a personal trainer and wellness coach at Planet Fitness, and the co-owner of The Buffalo Jump restaurant on Cape Cod with his wife. Brandon is also a chef with more than 20 years in the restaurant business, which he left for good at the beginning of the year. Battling substance abuse and obesity, Brandon decided that for the sake of both his mental and physical health, he would need to leave the restaurant business to lead a health lifestyle. Now that he’s seen some personal success with fitness and nutrition, he wants to help others with their goals, especially those in the hospitality business. Besides health and wellness, we also discuss turning his pop-up The Buffalo Jump into a brick and mortar restaurant, the state of the restaurant industry and what a post-Covid industry might look like.
