I'm your host, Adam Lamb, and over my 30-year career as a chef and hospitality professional, I have had some amazing and fulfilling experiences.
I have also made some monumental mistakes. Even at the height of my culinary success, I couldn't figure out why I was so unhappy and pissed off at almost everyone, almost all the time. Somewhere along my journey, I forgot why I became a culinarian.
But if my mess is my message then know that - no matter where you find yourself right now - you too can become the best version of yourself, regardless of the story you tell yourself.
I am committed to assisting you to remember why you fell in love with this craft and fraternity in the first place, just like I did. You'll learn some valuable insights and perspectives that will support your self-awareness, self-mastery, and, believe it or not, your own self-love and self-respect. In 'The New Kitchen Culture', you have a part to play.
We can't do it without you.
"We at Chef Life Radio believe that:
Working in a kitchen should be demanding; it shouldn't have to be demeaning.
It should be hard, it just doesn't have to be harsh.
We believe that it's possible to have more solidarity and less 'suck it up sunshine.
More Compassion and less Cut Throat Island.
We believe in more partnership and less 'put up or shut up.
More family, less fuck you. "
