Chef Marco Canora is known for his delicious food at Hearth and Terroir, and his Salt to Taste cookbook- but do you know about his philanthropic efforts? Tune into this edition of Good Food to hear Daniel Meyer talk with Chef Canora about his involvement with A Life Story Foundation, and his connection to the organization through one of Hearth's former servers. Why are chefs natural teachers, and why are they often interested in charity? Find out how a return to cooking can help curb obesity, and why using fresh ingredients should not be considered elitist. Finally, learn what recipes a novice home cook can easily make using few ingredients, and how Marco feels about the celebrity chef phenomenon. This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Thanks to The California Honeydrops for today's music.

"The restaurant business is not a high-margin business. I think it says a lot about the people in our industry; you don't open up a restaurant to make a lot of money... we're in the business of making people happy." [8:35]
