This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Kathy Sidell. The original live interview was 12/21/12.
Kathy Sidell's earliest memories take her back to food. At age 5 she was taken with her grandmother's artistry in the kitchen, and even more so by the big, family meals shared on the front porch of their seaside home. Though raised among foodies– her mother, a talented home entertainer, her banker father who single-handedly is credited for building the restaurant business in Boston; and a sister, now a chef and restaurateur–Kathy s route to food was not as linear.
Her early life as a film producer developed her love for story, themes, and setting. But by age 47, she found herself drawn back to food and the risk of restaurant life. When I Met Food chronicles this adventure, from how she selected her first location to the careful branding decisions required to build a highly successful restaurant enterprise in metropolitan Boston. In this engaging book, Kathy shares her business savvy peppered with encounters with influential people and even favorite recipes for the aspiring chef.
