Philly Chef Conference Spectacular with Mashama Bailey, Katie Button, Genevieve Gergis, Christina Nguyen, and Matt Orlando (and bonus guests John & Sukey Jamison)
ast weekend, an international who's who of chefs gathered in the City of Brotherly Love for the 6th Annual Philly Chef Conference. In between speaking gigs, Andrew was fortunate to sit down with some of the chefs who are making huge dents in the culinary universe right now. They are (in alphabetical order): Mashama Bailey of the Grey in Savannah, GA (recently the subject of a Chef's Table profile); Katie Button of Cúrate and Button & Co in Asheville, NC; Genevieve Gergis, co-owner & pastry chef of Bestia and Bavel in Los Angeles, CA; Christina Nguyen co-owner and chef of Hai Hai and Hola Arepa in Minneapolis, MN; and Matt Orlando of Amass in Copenhagen. Each of these roughly 30-minute conversations gives a glimpse into what makes each of these chefs tick, and what makes their restaurants so singularly important. And we have a Pennsylvania bonus: John & Sukey Jamison of the legendary Jamison Farm in Latrobe, PA, drove down to visit with Andrew and discuss their recently published memoir Coyotes in the Pasture and Wolves at the Door. We suggest you treat this episode as the anthology that it is and listen to individual interviews at your leisure, or spend an afternoon taking them all in together.
