I’m an unprofessional chef, I love this show
Absolute gem - the host, guests, topics, conversation flow… this is an all-around banger of a podcast for food lovers and anyone coming into the food industry sideways (like me)

One of only a few Shows I listen to.
Foody much? I am a business man, and I have owned, and will own again, a food business… I currently own a hospitality and service business that is not food, but my Wife and Daughter are both Chefs; one with and one without a restaurant. This is one of maybe about two podcast that I listen to on a regular basis. I have other podcast that I follow, but I usually hit “mark as read” two minutes in… But not this one. #truestory You have to understand that I own over a month (24hours x 31 days) worth of Audible books and have been listening to myriads of Podcast hours since they first became a thing. Most Podcast and Audio Books are GARBAGE, but Chris Spears and his “Chefs Without Restaurants” is NON-pretentious and real. Unlike most podcast, you can actually get something out of it consistently. Heck, it is even entertaining most of the time. It is always interesting and useful. I am sure that you will find it to be a favorite for yourself, as well. #100

Such a Great show!
There are a lot of food podcasts, but I really think that Chris’ voice and perspective is unique and such a welcome addition to a sea of content. It’s one of the few shows I stop what I’m doing to play and I’m never disappointed.

Great podcast!
Chris is an awesome host and brings on interesting guests! The show is both inspiring and actionable. Keep going! 🙌

Great Resource for ALL Chefs
I am so glad Chris created a community for Chef that don’t work in the traditional restaurant jobs. I wish I had a resource like this 20 years ago when I was a young chef looking for other venues to cook in. Not only are there great interviews and conversations with Non restaurant Chefs but there are great interviews for All chef and food enthusiasts.
