NBSV 128: Self-care for chefs, food insecurity, and more: a discussion with Chef Stephanie

It’s not out of the ordinary for us to hear about self-care, ideal ways to practice it, and why it’s so imperative. It is rare, however, to hear it discussed within the culinary world.

Enter Chef Stephanie Michalak White, who developed and launched a plant-based program at the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts [currently ranked as the #1 culinary school in the entire world.]

Stephanie and I discuss her program development, what self-care means for chefs and folks in culinary worlds, and the major topic of food insecurity.

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> How Chef Stephanie came to veganism, and got her start in the culinary industry. It involved realizing that food is political!

>> The plant-based program she helped to develop and launch at the Escoffier School of Culinary Arts.

>> The market need for a plant-based-specific culinary diploma and degree program.
