Chris Clarke and the Something About Food Podcast

Montreal Pastry 1024x1024 - Chris Clarke and the Something About Food Podcast

Born and raised a tiny village in upstate New York, I am a culinary veteran with over 30 years of experience working in restaurants, catering, in the natural foods industry, and as a culinary educator. Now, I find myself to be a 50-year old, mostly vegan, dedicated devourer who prefers street food to a typical white linen fine dining experience. I spent a year traveling and eating around the world to better understand food.  I was a winner of “Denver’s Best Home Chef” contest, appeared as a guest chef on several morning programs and once competed on an obscure Food Network trivia game show, where I came in second and won a year’s supply of Jordan Almonds and Junior Mints.

After selling most of what I owned and traveling the world for a year I decided to write a book about what I ate and where I went. Then I started the podcast Something About Food? so that I could carry on that world of food conversation with diverse guests.
