This week on Chef’s Story, Dorothy meets up with Tory McPhail, executive chef of Commander’s Palace in New Orleans, Louisiana. She asks him about growing up in a small town in Washington, and how his passion for cooking led him to travel the country to explore different cultures and culinary worlds. Tune in to hear Tory’s full story! This program has been sponsored by Whole Foods Market. Today’s music has been provided by Dead Stars.


“I thought I really knew how to cook and I understood what good flavors were all about, but coming down to New Orleans I didn’t know a thing about what great food really was.” [9:15]
