Chef Craig Russell from Restaurant to Hotel and back again ep.002


Chef Russell is a longtime Philly boy.  He has spent time in a multitude of kitchens from pizza, to upscale bar food, but his sweet spot is small BYOB’s with creative food. He took a leap to run a large hotel as the Executive Chef.  He was unprepared and was given little support to help him succeed. In this interview he describes the worst service of his life.  You can tell how traumatic this event was as the emotions from this hell of a breakfast service are still there.  Have you ever run out of eggs, apples and bananas 10 minutes into a breakfast service.  After moving on from a position that was not for me, Craig is now on a path that has him excited about the future and cooking creative food again
