Welcome to the Chefs Without Restaurants podcast. I’m your host Chris Spear. On the show, I have conversations with culinary entrepreneurs, and people in the food and beverage industry who took a different route. They’re caterers, research chefs, personal chefs cookbook authors, food truckers, farmers, cottage bakers and all sorts of culinary renegades. I myself fall into the personal chef category, as I started my personal chef business Perfect Little Bites 10 years ago. And while I started working in kitchens in 1992, surprisingly, I’ve literally never worked in a restaurant.

This week we speak with Charles Hunter III. He’s a personal chef, recipe developer and food blogger based in Nashville, Tennessee. He’s the owner of The Salted Table Company, an in-home catering company that prepares meals for backyard weddings, dinner parties, business dinners and more, in the comfort of your own home. Charles and I have similar backgrounds as it relates to blogging, and the personal chef business, so I really wanted to ask him some questions about how he got started, and how he runs his business. Some of the things we talk about are using social media as a tool for growing your business, being a chef who blogs, dinner party fiascoes and pricing your dinners. 

You can find Charles sharing his recipes, and kitchen musings, on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. He also has a Patreon where you can pay $6/month for exclusive recipes, kitchen tips and advice for all things culinary. You can find links to all of the social media platforms below.

The Chefs Without Restaurants Podcast – Episode 53 Hari Cameron of Grandpa Mac, and Chef Consultant at Arcobaleno - Talking Pasta, the Move to Fast Casual, and Content Creation

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

On this week’s podcast I speak with chef Hari Cameron. Hari is the chef consultant at Arcobaleno, as well as the chef partner at Grandpa Mac. I met Hari a few years ago when he was the chef and owner of a(MUSE.) restaurant in Rehoboth, Deleware, a restaurant that he closed on New Year’s Eve 2019.  We discuss the move from fine dining to fast casual, as well as his new position with Arcobaleno. Arcobaleno makes kitchen equipment, and have become known for their pasta extruders. Hari’s extensive use of these extruders is what led to his chef consultant job with them. We also talk about content creation and being a brand ambassador for a company, as well as his spirit collaboration with Dogfish Head.
