Take a break from the madness of the holiday season, throw on a life vest, and join Andrew and Chef Kerry Heffernan as they chat on board Grand Banks, a restaurant situated on a converted boat docked off lower Manhattan. Kerry takes us through his career, from his days as a New York City line cook working for such legends as David Bouley, to his time in France with a fellow, then-unknown whisk named Tom Colicchio (who turned him on to fishing) to becoming a chef in his own right. Along the way, they discuss sustainability, changes in the profession (including the very definition of “chef”), and the intersection of cooking and politics. Here’s a thought: If you like what you hear, please tell your chef-fascinated friends, subscribe to Andrew Talks to Chefs (it’s free) on iTunes or Stitcher, follow us on your favorite social media platforms @ChefPodcast, and/or rate or review us on Apple’s podcast store.
