On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer is joined by Eric Adjepong, chef/co-founder of Pinch & Plate; and On the Double, a new restaurant showcasing the African diaspora soon to open in Washington D.C.’s Union Market. Eric was a finalist on Bravo's Top Chef – Season 16, where he earned consistent acclaim, introducing viewers to traditional Ghanaian cuisine; and recently returned as a contestant on Top Chef – All Stars/Season 17.  As a first-generation Ghanaian-American born, who was born and raised in New York City, Eric sources the flavors and influences in his cooking from many of the West African dishes he grew up eating. Eric has cooked in several Michelin-starred restaurants in New York. He has degrees in Culinary Arts and Culinary Nutrition (BS) from Johnson & Wales, and International Public Health Nutrition (MPH) from the University of Westminster in London.

It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
