As the coronavirus shatters and shudders restaurants around the world, legendary Chef and Top Chef Host, Tom Colicchio joins Paul Rieckhoff to quickly break down how bad it really is for the food business. He’s had to close his world-famous restaurants, lay-off hundreds of staff, and reorganize this entire business. But he’s adapting, challenging President Trump and spearheading a new movement of restaurant owners, workers and suppliers to save and shape the future of food in America. For anyone who loves food (or just anyone who eats) this is a conversation you need to hear.
Independent Restaurant Coalition was just created by Tom–and is now fighting back on behalf of all the restaurants you love. Tom shares how long he thinks restaurants will be closed, how you can get involved, and even offers some tips on cooking in the pandemic!
