“On the Road” at the LA Chef Conference 2023; Courtney Storer, The Bear; Matthew Kang, Eater LA

Episode: 374

Today on our episode #374 of All in the Industry,®, Shari Bayer has a special “On the Road” show from the LA Chef Conference 2023, a premier industry conference on the West Coast, which took place on Monday, October 30th at the LA Trade-Tech’ Culinary Arts Pathway, and was founded by Brad Metzger of Brad Metzger Restaurant Solutions, who was our guest on Episode #368 for a preview of the event along with nationally acclaimed chef Sherry Yard of Bakery By the Yard. As a part of the conference, Shari signed copies of her new book, Chefwise: Life Lessons from Leading Chefs Around the World (Phaidon, Spring 2023, #chefwisebook), with cookbook and culinary shop, Now Serving. 

Our show features two interviews — first Shari chats with Courtney Storer, Chef & Culinary Producer of the hit TV series, The Bear, now streaming on Hulu. Courtney is a chef with more than 15 years of experience in restaurants, and the sister of Christopher Storer, the creator of the The Bear. As the show’ culinary producer, she has been responsible for the food that is presented in each scene, as well as for the culinary skills of the cast, and getting the writers, cast, and crew acclimated to the culinary world the series takes place in. Courtney has worked in high-profile kitchens from Verjus in Paris to Jon & Vinny’ in L.A. 

Second, Shari speaks with Matthew Kang, Lead Editor of Eater LA. Matthew has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. His work has been featured in Angeleno Magazine and TASTE Cooking. He is the host of K-Town, a YouTube show covering Korean American food in America. Previously he was a commercial bank analyst and received a business degree from the University of Southern California. Thanks and congratulations Courtney, Matthew, Brad, and everyone involved in #LAChefCon! Wonderful to be a part of! 

Today’s show also features Shari’s PR tip to embrace a nickname, speed rounds, and Solo Dining experience at LULU, an open-air courtyard restaurant at the Hammer Museum in Westwood, LA, celebrating good food that is good for the planet; founded by legendary chef, food activist, and Chefwise contributor Alice Waters, and acclaimed chef, writer, and cookbook author David Tanis.
