Ryan Peters on Leaving Restaurants to Focus on Content Creation and Pasta Making

Ryan Peters on Leaving Restaurants to Focus on Content Creation and Pasta Making

This week my guest is Ryan Peters. Ryan has been cooking professionally for a number of years now, working in kitchens in Florida and Pittsburgh. Most recently he was working at Iron Born Pizza, focusing on their pasta program. You might know Ryan from his social media accounts where he goes by Peters Pasta. As of today, he has more than 43,000 followers on Instagram, and 2.2 million followers on TikTok. Ryan was able to recently leave his job to focus full time on his social media content, as well as a line of pasta he hopes to launch. 

We discuss his career path, going viral on TikTok, and pasta-making tips. Hear about his challenges, new opportunities, and his take on the haters. I ask Ryan about his favorite tools, where he finds inspiration, and what his favorite pasta shape is. Any guesses?
