Chef Daniel Boulud

Chef Daniel Boulud talks about his coming of age as a young chef to adapting French cuisine to American ingredients and tastes, and how he expresses his culinary artistry at Restaurant Daniel. His new, definitive cookbook, Daniel: My French Cuisine, includes more than 75 signature recipes, plus an additional 12 recipes Boulud prepares at home for his friends on more casual occasions.


Turning Food Past Its Sell-By Date into Healthy, Low-Cost Meals

Doug Rauch, former president of Trader Joe’s, talks about food insecurity, food waste, and his new project, The Daily Table. Rauch plans to open a restaurant/grocery store that will sell prepared food, fruits and vegetables that are past their sell-by dates yet are still fresh and safe to eat. He wants to use some of the grocery industry’s estimated $47 million of wasted food each year to help feed low-income communities.
