Leiti Hsu is back for a brand new episode of WORD OF MOUTH after a brief hiatus! She's full of energy and joined by a great guest to get things back on track. Hear from Chris Jaeckle, the talented chef behind All'onda, a modern Venetian inspired Italian restaurant with Japanese influences in New York City. Chris is a fine dining vet, having worked as head chef at Michael White's Ai Fiori and spending almost a decade in kitchens like Tabla, Eleven Madison Park and Moriomoto. Tune in and hear why his mom is so important to him, why other cultures fascinate him and what it was like dealing with a brain tumor amidst a difficult time in his career. This program was brought to you by Of a Kind.

"When you're about to put 110-120 hours a week into something, other things seem to slip away." [08:00]

"I'm a very curious person - I'm always trying to understand cultures and quite often that's through food." [16:00]

"Everyone rubs you the wrong way sometimes. It's about finding those people who rub you the wrong way the least." [42:00]
