"I had my first culinary experience from a chow-chow cart, an eggroll, prior to the food trucks that come around." [18:50]

"I guess I was cooking a little leaner food and one day Greg came home from high school and said, 'look mom, I'm hungry... and I don't mean vegetable hungry, I mean meat hungry!'"[22:14]

"Inviting people to your house, setting the table, and giving them food from the heart is a real special occasion." [45:26]

Michel Richard is an author, industry advocate, philanthropist, and legendary chef. Known as a pioneer of French food in America, the Brittany native knew he wanted to be a chef at 8, when he first glimpsed a restaurant kitchen. At 14, Richard apprenticed at a patisserie in Champagne, moving to Paris three years later, where he quickly rose to the top position at Gaston Lenotre’s esteemed pastry shop. In 1974, he moved to America to help open a Manhattan shop with Lenotre and found himself at home in a new country. Three years later, he opened Michel Richard in Los Angeles—it was an instantaneous success. A decade later, Richard opened the stylized and quintessentially French-Californian Citrus and the following year was inducted into James Beard’s “Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America.” Richard then opened a series of restaurants across the country, and even in Japan. Find out what it took to transition from pastry to savory chef and hear the legendary Michel Richard reflect on his career with Dorothy Cann Hamilton on Chef's Story. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

[Savory cooking] is fun because you have to come up with something different every day. You get to create an emotion with your cooking." [15:00]

"In 10 years America will be the best. All the young chefs want to move to America." [27:00]

This week on The Morning After, hosts Sari and Jessie welcome from Pearl & Ash restaurant, general manager Branden McRill and wine director Patrick Cappiello. Starting off the show with a 'Currant' Food Affair, the duo bring up hot topics that have made recent headlines, including thoughts on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. After the break, Branden and Patrick share how they came to team up and have a hand in creating Pearl & Ash. Set in a challenging location in New York City, Patrick mentions how the restaurant pioneered the area but also that the neighborhood adds to the charm of Pearl & Ash. The guys explain that Pearl & Ash prides itself in its staff as well as its social media presence, both of which help to make customers feel like family once they walk in the door. At the tail end of show, Sari and Jessie point out the guys' love of danger, also known as sabering champagne, which perfectly leads to the first ever The Morning After Quiz! This program was brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"The philosophy to me with the wine program was that I want people to be able to come to the restaurant no matter who they are, no matter what their wine experience is, what their budget is, no matter what their particular desire that evening is, to be able to have many bottles that are enticing to them. [21:47]

--Patrick Cappiello on The Morning After

"I also think that you can take the methodology of the wine list and extrapolate it across the entirety of the restaurant to say that it is about the approachability and access." [23:39]
