Chef Joe of Chestnut, Corner Kitchen, and Corner Kitchen Catering and I talk about over 30 local food venues, and conduct an interview with Jennifer Lapidus of Carolina Ground boutique flour mill, and baker Laura Geotz from Table / Tod’s Tasties / Imperial life.
As usual, Joe has the best line of the show when he talks about “walking off the Sysco plank into the abyss of farm-to-table,” in the context of realistic food cost fears for restauranteurs.

AVL Food Fans is produced by Matt Johnson at Zapow Productions, the theme song was written and performed by The DeRita Sisters.




Stu Helm is an artist and writer living in Asheville, NC, and a frequent diner at local restaurants, cafes, food trucks, and the like. His tastes run from hot dogs and mac ‘n’ cheese, to haute cuisine, and his opinions are based on a lifetime of eating out. He began writing about food strictly to amuse his friends on Facebook.
