A Conversation about Mental Health and Substance Abuse in the Professional Kitchen
Happy Friday, everybody. We had a pretty frank conversation about mental health in the professional kitchen yesterday on our podcast, The Front Burner with Jimmy and Andrew. Author Kat Kinsman, whose book Hi, Anxiety: Life with a Bad Case of Nerves is due out in May, joined us to discuss her Chefs With Issues program (if you’re in the industry or a related business, please consider taking her anonymous online survey). We were joined by chef Jesse Schenker (NYC’s Recette and The Gander), author of his own memoir All or Nothing, and industry veteran Frank Crispo, of New York City’s Crispo restaurant. Please give the show a listen.
