Two big winners at last week’s James Beard Foundation Awards join Andrew on this week’s show: Kwame Onwuachi of Kith and Kin in Washington, DC, and author of the new book Notes from a Young Black Chef, who was named Rising Star Chef; and Kelly Fields of Willa Jean in New Orleans, Louisiana, who was named Outstanding Pastry Chef. Both open up dramatically, both about their own lives and about a societal issues they and the industry grapple with every day.
