"Being a foodie was a hobby. Asian kids didn't grow up to be chefs. If you weren't smart - you ended up in the kitchen. I never thought about cooking as a profession." [17:00]

"It's good to have rules, but ultimately I think a chef's job isn't about the food - it's about people coming in to the restaurant to have a good time. It's our job to facilitate that and it's not always about the food." [29:00]

"My friends should be able to come into the restaurant and before even tasting the food and say 'This reminds me of Hooni' " [39:00]

"Cheese tastes amazing - but if you just smell it, you'll never taste it. That's the same with Korean fermented food." [48:00]

Today on Chef's Story Michelle Weaver comes to us from Charleston Grill in Charleston, South Carolina to talk with us about her chef's story! A native from the south and growing up in Alabama, Chef Michelle Weaver was raised with a passion for cooking, from learning at an early age the importance of farm-to-table, to growing up cooking with the freshest ingredients from her mother’s extensive garden and farm, and experiencing the true taste of the soil. Upon receiving her formal training from the New England Culinary Institute which taught her the intimate, hands on approach, Chef Weaver first began her journey as an intern in the French-style kitchen of Chef Daniel Bonnot. Following school, Chef Weaver began cooking in the kitchen of Chef Bob Waggoner at The Wild Boar restaurant in Nashville and subsequently moved with him in 1997 when he took over at Charleston Grill. Working as the Executive Sous Chef, Chef Weaver eventually stepped into the spotlight as the hotel's Executive Chef, part of the Charleston Place Hotel, an Orient-Express property. Tune-in to truly learn and understand the passion needed to becoming a chef, and how Chef Weaver was able to get to her position today. This program has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"At first I wanted to be a marketing director, but I kept coming back to food and beverages." [13:20]

"Charleston was a port city, all of these influences influence the cuisine, and create change." [39:10]
