What is a Chef with Jensen Cummings of Best Served

What is a Chef with Jensen Cummings of Best Served

This week, we have a mini-episode about what it means to be a chef. This is something I'm asking many of the guests as part of my upcoming season 3 interviews. I thought it would be great to get as much insight on this as possible, from many different people in the food and beverage industry.

Today's answer comes from Jensen Cummings, the creator, and host of Best Served Podcast. On his show, he talks to hospitality industry leaders to learn about the trials and triumphs of their lives and careers. A fifth-generation chef/restaurateur, Jensen has run acclaimed kitchens, owned restaurants, developed concepts, and now is focused on evolving the restaurant business model, and storytelling through his hospitality strategy brand, Best Served Creative. Jensen is really interested in sharing the stories of people in the hospitality industry who are the unsung heroes.

Jensen was previously on the show in August 2022. You can find my full conversation with him here or wherever you get your podcasts.

Looking to make better pizza? How about bagels, bread, or English muffins? Then you need a Baking Steel. Don’t just take my word for it. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats/The Food Lab said “this is the answer I've been waiting for to produce consistently awesome pizza over and over”.
