Respect Culture, Craft, Product with John Fleer of Rhubarb

Nathan sits down with chef John Fleer of Rhubarb for the 83rd episode of the Finding Asheville podcast. They chat about growing up in Winston Salem, how a graduate school discussion about craft lead to a transition from academia to the kitchen, how Asheville chefs can help build a food system that will eventually benefit the food insecure, who can’t afford to dine at farm to table Asheville restaurants now or buy local produce, how a stint running the Culinary Institute of America’s restaurant completely changed how he viewed his career, why perceived ownership of one’s work whether in fact he or she is the owner of such work is key to being successful in one’s career, and why respecting each person for who they are shaped his own personal success.
