St. Louis chef and restaurateur Gerard Craft stops by the podcast studio today to discuss his young yet storied career. The man behind the Niche Food Group and restaurants like the more upscale Sardella and the fast casual Porano, talks about his rise from aspiring snowboard photographer to James Beard Award-winning chef, as well as his views on his adopted city, family-friendly dining, and why he opened his second outpost of his Pastaria in Nashville. Then comedian Cara Weinberger tells us about her tradition of punny Oscars foods.
