Chef Chris Kronner has been a Bay Area stalwart for more than a decade now. He first came on the scene working with Chad Robertson at his flagship, Tartine Bakery. He then bounced around for while with stints in NYC, Uruguay, Japan, England, Switzerland and Peru, among other locales, before opening KronnerBurger in 2015 in Oakland. Chris’ burgers are a something of a phenomenon, drawing acclaim far and wide. Sadly, in early 2018 a fire closed KronnerBurger, but not to worry Chris has landed on his feet with both a new cookbook, A Burger to Believe In, and a new kitchen gig, linking up with Robertson again to open Henry’s in Berkeley. Prima is the rock project from Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, Rose Blanshei. Over the years, Prima’s developed a reputation for powerful lyricism and emotional storytelling driven by Rose’s searing voice which evokes the likes of Patti Smith, PJ Harvey and Karen O, complemented by her guitar whose sound she says is inspired by, “Lightning. Dirt. Metals. Debt.” Prima’s debut EP, Performance, was released in summer 2017, and is the result of Rose plumbing the innermost emotional depths of pain, suffering and violence. Rose joins us in studio to talk about the arc of Prima over the years, and also gives us a live studio performance. Check out Prima’s latest single, “Diva.”
