If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to give up everything and race towards adventure, look to chef, author and podcaster Chris Clarke who spins the tale of her trip around the world. Stories of the places she explored and the things she learned, inward and outward, along the way; how she sold all that she had and how she wandered, got lost, found her way, discovered, ate, cooked and shared marvelous and delicious food.
Upon her return to the states she started the “Something About Food?” podcast to continue those food-filled conversations where everyone is invited to the table. She’ll interview an audience member or two about how food impacted them, and the tasty, memorable and outright ridiculous things they’ve eaten. It isn’t just food - it’s people’s connections to what they eat and their connection us.
About the Author:
Born and raised a tiny village in upstate New York, Chris Clarke is a culinary veteran with over 35 years of experience working in restaurants, catering, the natural foods industry, and as a culinary educator. She is now a 51-year-old mostly-vegan who prefers street food to a white linen fine dining experience. She was a winner of the “Denver’s Best Home Chef” contest, appeared as a guest chef on several morning programs, and once competed on an obscure Food Network trivia game show where she came in second and won a year's supply of Jordan Almonds and Junior Mints.
After selling most of what she owned and traveling the world for a year to better understand food, she decided to write a book about what she ate and where she went. Then she started the podcast Something About Food? so that she could carry on that food exploration and conversation.
