Rōze Traore maintains quite the balancing act. He’s a personal chef and owner of the eponymous New York City bespoke events company, Rōze Traore, LLC. Prior to that he cut his teeth alongside acclaimed chef Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park and the Nomad. In addition to his work in the kitchen, Rōze’s been known to walk the runways, and over the years has modeled for the likes of Nike and Rochambeau.

Our musical guest, Sean McGuiness, has also made a reputation of keeping multiple plates spinning at time. We’ve known Sean since our middle school days in Philly, and he’s still crushing it in our hometown. He’s most known as the drummer for Pissed Jeans, and over the years he’s also played with Utensil, The Great Collector, Bazhena, Technician, Navies, Go to Sleep, Like Language, Ready Set, Air Conditioning and more. Besides being a prolific musician, Sean’s the co-owner of the Lunar Inn, a restaurant and bar, and Tinys Bottle Shop, a beer, cider and natural wine shop. Sean shares live tracks with us from his solo project, Sean on Drums. In exciting news, our very first book, Snacky Tunes: Music is the Main Ingredient, Chefs and Their Music (Phaidon), is available now for preorder.
