Bretton and Zahra met while working at Zahra's former Brooklyn restaurant, Brucie, in 2012. Both lifetime lovers of all things culinary, the two formed an instant bond over plum glaze and pet nats. Bretton has worked at just about every great restaurant this side of the rocky mountains, and Zahra continues to work as a restaurant consultant and caterer. They have both been through their fair share of highs and lows over the years, and that's why they began their podcast. In todays highly aspirational food culture they draw from their personal experience in the industry and beyond, as well as from the interesting stories they unpack each week, to remind listeners that the world can be your oyster even when you aren't draped in pearls.
