After working intensely and successfully with star chefs like David Bouley and Michael Mina, Sarah Rich and her equally accomplished husband Evan decided to open their own place Rich Table in San Francisco. It was a dream come true, but a dream with an emotional as well as economic price tag when the two had to figure out how to run the restaurant and take care of a child. On this episode of Speaking Broadly, Sarah tells the story of struggling to open the business, then the difficulty of coming to terms with handing over daily cooking duties and taking on pastry in order to be home with their infant son. As the restaurant world confronts work-life balance and tries to figure out how to embrace and accommodate working mothers, Sarah’s strong, poignant voice is important to hear.
