161 | Chef Chris Zabita from Society Cafe in New York on Farmers Markets, Creative Cooking, Picky Guests, Experimenting with Food + more!

My boyfriend and I spoke in person with executive chef Chris Zabita at his NYC market to table restaurant Society Cafe a couple weeks ago. We talked about everything from picky eaters to cooking for yourself as a chef to the competitive nature of the restaurant industry.  Since moving to New York I’ve been recording most of my interviews in-person and I’m loving it because it allows way more intimacy than Skype can, hopefully you can feel that and it’s a welcome change to the show. I’ve also been exploring the plethora of restaurants in the city Cafe Society being one of them. This interview was a blast to record and I hope you enjoy eavesdropping on this candid conversation.  Chef Chris gave us a look into what it is like to be a chef, how he feels about popular foodie trends, how he feels about picky eaters modifying his dishes, and much more.

Also – this coming weekend I’ll be in Philly for this event here. I’d love to see you there, let me know on social media, in the Facebook Group, or just show up and hug me.
