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]

In 1827, before Delmonico's opened, diners ate at cafes and boarding houses (inns), where the food was simply the food available that day from the farms. Diners had no choice of dishes, but ate the food that was served. Delmonico's changed all of that. Today's guest is Billy Oliva, graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and currently the Executive Chef at Delmonico's. This program has been sponsored by Heritage Foods USA. Today's music provided by Pamela Royal.

"[Delmonico's] is history. And when you walk through the door you feel that way." [5:15]

"Ireland is not really known for food but that has changed so much." [28:00]
