MIS EN PLACE PODCAST // Episode 2 — Local Flavours and Food Systems

Welcome to the Mis En Place podcast. Hosted by chef, restaurateur and Chefs Table Society president Robert Belcham, the podcast covers a variety of topics related to the complicated lives of the people who cook your food.

In this episode, chef/host Robert Belcham is joined by Andrea Carlson (Burdock & Co., Harvest Community Foods) and Brian Luptak (The Acorn, Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts) for a feature conversation on the future of local food systems…and the professional cook’s role in securing that future.

For the view from the farm gate, Robert calls Susan Davidson (Glorious Organics) to get an explanation of modern agriculture in five minutes or less. For a deep-dive into another tasty resource, chef Poyan Danesh (Ocean Mama Seafood) steps into the Walk-in Confessional to testify to the future of ocean-to-table menus.

And Top Chef Canada champion Nicole Gomes (Cluck’n’Cleaver) drops by to share her hopes and plans for CooksCamp2020.
