I have listened to every episode and eagerly await each new one every week. Andrew has an engaging interview style that gets his subjects to open up. One of the most important things I have learned from this podcast is that fundamentally, chefs and other people in the hospitality industry are...Read full review »

I found your show 4 months after opening my own plant based restaurant in Salt Lake City. I have struggled to feel like a chef and have felt like an imposter each time I am referred to as one. Through listening to this show I have found the struggles of the first few years are not rare and that...Read full review »

This has the potential of being a great podcast except for the fact that Andrew, the host, talks too much, both in the introduction and with guests. I hope he can find a way to learn from Terry Gross, the interview master, who seems more confident. She takes a step back and lets her guests do the...Read full review »

I’m constantly looking for podcasts that understand chef life, this has been a great find.

Andrew has a crazy diversity of guests on the show that all have something unique to teach. Amongst the industry heavy hitters are neighbourhood chefs and restaurant sees. There’s new chefs and older chefs, the ones that influenced the current influencers, and everything in between. I really...Read full review »

I started listening to this podcast after seeing Andrew as a judge on Beat Bobby Flay. I love that most Chefs interviewed are in NY. It's interesting to hear the different roads Chefs have traveled to get to where they are. Inspirational!Read full review »

Whether you are a food professional or simply someone who loves food and/or cooking, this is a fascinating and highly inspirational podcast. I came across it by accident and I’m so glad I did.

I started listening to this podcast because I read Mr. Friedman‘s book chef drugs and rock ‘n’ roll and have enjoyed it immensely. I am a professional chef I have been listening to it while I am prepping, while I am driving just can’t get enough. Anyone interested in a Restaurants chefs the...Read full review »

Aural torture. Competing egos. If it were 15 minutes I would consider listening. Can’t commit to listen to this garbage for 2 hours.

Andrew, I’ve been listening to your pod cast since fall of 2019. I’m a career changer and recently graduated from culinary school. Listening to your show has been very eye opening and inspiring. As an aspiring chef, listening to your show and hearing other chefs talk about their struggles and...Read full review »

Andrew’s interviews are in depth, honest, deep dive conversations with chefs. The respect and curiosity he has for chefs, restaurants and the restaurant/hospitality industry shows. I’ve listened to every episode, some multiple times, and I love supporting Andrew on Patreon. If you’re not...Read full review »

Andrew has an incredible curiosity about how the food industry operates and specifically about the mindset of chefs...where they come from, what drives them against all odds, and displays empathy for their failure and successes. He shares he own personal struggles too which is enlightening to all...Read full review »

Recently discovered this show during the lockdown and man has this really helped me still feel apart of the industry. Thank you for this podcast and hearing other chefs stories has been a mind opening experience.

Long time listener! Happy Birthday Andrew! Thanks for the countless times you’ve ridden with me and your guests on the way to work!

Andrew, great job on a wonderful podcast. As a professional chef, good F&B themed podcasts are few and far between, but yours is truly a pleasure to listen to. Enjoyed your book, but only these last few weeks stumbled upon your podcast and thank god I did! Don’t change anything, seriously!

I don’t cook professionally, just passionately in my own home. I found this podcast through a search for cooking-related podcasts to get me through my desk job. It’s fascinating and entertaining, and Andrew’s passion certainly adds an element that makes each interview something special. Side...Read full review »

I really enjoy the conversations on Andrew Talks to Chefs. Ive tried some really great restaurants after listening to his podcasts.
LJB SOLOMEN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/10/20
I just recently discovered this podcast and now am frantically trying to catch up. I’m a chef, all these stories are about my people, some whom I know well and others that I’m just meeting for the first time. But they’re all worthwhile. If you liked Andrew’s book, you’re going to enjoy this as well
chefdurfee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/20
Not a chef but love food and inter workings of chefs. Love to cook and learn from chefs. Would love to here from chefs outside of nyc and Cali. Maybe Austin? Msp?
stevesmeatz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/17/20
To a food enthusiast like myself, chefs are literally rockstars. It’s safe to say I fit the demographic for this podcast. “Andrew Talks to Chefs” features fascinating discussions with chefs. Notice I said “discussions” rather than “interviews”. Andrew’s interviewing style is more...Read full review »

Andrew does a great job of pulling back the curtain on the personalities of the great people in the culinary profession. Learning about their processes and philosophies help me, a person not in the culinary profession, appreciate food and dining more.
lg9633 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/20
Been listening for years now. Often a treat for industry folks and “civilians “ alike. It’s not as much about food and restaurant life as it is about our common struggle in life, love and career. I’m from a “front of house” background (waiters, bartenders, managers) so I love to listen in to a...Read full review »

I’m a young Executive Chef at a hospital in rural Idaho. I am far from the fine dining scene. Listening to this podcast brings me inspiration and insight into the lives of professional and acclaimed chef’s I may never meet, delving deep into backgrounds of their lives, restaurants, and futures.

I found this podcast through another chef style podcast I honestly can’t remember witch one it was.

Super stoked to be able to add this to the list of chef...Read full review »

All the interviews are so great and give great insight into the restaurant industry. I visited your website after listening to your plea for subscriber help. Hope more people can find the site.

You are too hard on yourself. Dear Andrew, you are where you are because of the fabulous insight and natural ability to coax out of your guests the stories of struggle and triumph in an unrelenting industry.

I am so excited to finally be writing this review, I wanted to wait until I caught up on the entire series. I first found this podcast through the Tim Hollingsworth episode.

Being married to a chef myself and also being a part of the restaurant business I found Andrew talks to Chefs enlightening. He opens the doors to so many topics that aren’t thought of by many. Keep it up Andrew!
BAM's pal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/19
I love this podcast. Andrew not only has real conversations with chefs about real life issues in kitchens but he talks with actual chefs. Some of the best chefs in the industry. The chefs that other chefs know, not just the food network world. It is so great to here their inspirations and stories...Read full review »

While this podcast is an amazing listen for industry veterans, I think it's a must for up and comers in the world of food. My advice is to pick a chef you've never heard of and take the time to listen to his/her story. Andrew has a knack for finding a connection with his guests that...Read full review »

Andrew does a great interview! Not to loud, not boring at all!

I am certain that Andrew Friedman's interviews with chefs and other restaurateurs will become--in fact, they are already--an invaluable historical archive. Smithsonian style. Because he is so well informed about his interviewees, Friedman brings out significant, little-known aspects of his...Read full review »

I’m a 20+ year vet of the chef world and I fall into the many trappings talked about on this show. Growing up as many chefs did with some form of learning disability and not really knowing what it was or why. I myself fell into sports and cooking because that’s where I felt I belonged most. They...Read full review »

Andrew’s conversations with chefs and industry insiders are always enlightening and entertaining. He is prepared, inquisitive, and connected to the guests. I have learned something new in almost every interview.
Arugasabi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/19
This is a great program with a knowledgeable and skilled host. You will learn about the experiences of many of the world’s best chefs. Required listening for young cooks, experienced chefs, and culinary enthusiasts.

I love to wind down the night by listening to Andrew & each and every chef he brings on his podcasts. I may listen to an entire episode at once, but when they go over an hour I’ll usually break them up into two nights. Last night I listened to his interview with Milton Abel ll and it really...Read full review »

Already being a fan of his books, Andrew does a great job interviewing some of the most interesting chefs, especially some of the lesser known cookies in the US. As a chef myself, it’s great to hear that I’m not alone in a lot of feelings among those in the industry. Also that you don’t...Read full review »

This podcast couldn’t have come a better time in my life. I am a line cooked turned chef and to be able to listen to chefs that I look up to is great.

I really enjoy this podcast and appreciate that you do your homework on the chefs/guests . I think it helps you ask some great questions and allowing the guests to open up . Keep turning over those stones !

I’ve been listening to this podcast from it’s inception and honestly have been waiting a long time for someone to spearhead a project like this.
