The Chefs Without Restaurants Podcast – Episode 58 Chef Jamie Simpson of The Chef's Garden and The Culinary Vegetable Institute - Adapting the Business, and Selling to the Home Consumer

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

On this week’s podcast we have chef Jamie Simpson. He is the chef liason at The Chef’s Garden, and the executive chef of the culinary vegetable institute. The Chef’s Garden has been delivering amazing produce and specialty products direct from the farm to chefs and restaurants for over 30 years. As many businesses have had to pivot due to Covid, The Chef’s Garden has also made some changes. While still offering their products to chefs, they now also offer home delivery boxes direct to the consumer.

Jamie and I talk about this new program, as well as some of the other things they’re doing like co-packing, working on shelf stable ingredients, cooking for smaller private events and their new AirBNB accommodation. We also discuss the annual Roots conference that they host, and conferences in general.

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

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.
