PODCAST: The beauty & pain of being a restaurant industry vet w/ Chef Arthur Gonzalez of Panxa

Self-care. Health amongst the entirety of the kitchen staff. Knowing when to stand your ground on your food and when to walk away. These are some of the things many folks in the restaurant industry _don’t_ talk about—and in order to talk about it correctly, you need experience. Enter Chef Arthur Gonzalez, the man behind Panxa Cocina and who founded Roe in Belmont Shore. Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett sit down with the veteran to talk about how he has re-approached his own self in order to find a new found love for the future and food.
