Episode 33

Following your Bliss

To call Chef Jessica Dawson a globetrotter is an understatement. She joins the show this week to tell Chef Rich and Justin about hitchhiking in Iceland, trying to spend Christmas break in Antarctica, her experiences in South America, and, oh yeah, her diverse experiences in the foodservice industry.


Be sure to follow Chef Rich and Justin on Twitter at @ChefRrupp and @jupehr.
