If you are going to the fancy food show in San Francisco, let me know
When you are in the Uptown District in Oakland, CA I highly suggest you take yourself to Plum Food & Drink.
Plum Food & Drink is comfortable, fun, and a great neighborhood restaurant.
Manfred Wrembel does not take food too seriously. He describes it as “simple, but not simplistic”. This is Manfreds’ first post as an Executive Chef and he is not letting it go to his head. He is engaging and playful with his guests sitting at the kitchen bar. Sitting at the kitchen bar is where you want to be, unless you are on a romantic date.
The cooks in the kitchen are clad in black T-shirts, jeans, and black aprons.
The food tastes great and is fun to boot. Listen to the podcast to hear what we had and how it turned out.
Talking with Jordan, who is a recent high school graduate, sparked the question: “Do you need to go to culinary school to become a chef?”
Jordan spent a few years taking culinary classes as a vocation in high school. He took it seriously and learned a lot there. Now the question begs to be answered. Is it really worth him spending even more money to go to a culinary school?
What did culinary school do for you?
Did you skip culinary school and start in kitchens at young age? How did that steer your career?
