Episode 50: Will Hernandez & Food As Memory

"You have to be a bad vegan before you're a good one, don't treat it like a contest... it's all a journey."

-Chef Will Hernande

On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with my business partner and super talented chef Will Hernandez. We talk about how Will worked his way up from stacking boxes at Panera Bread at 19 to running kitchens, how he found himself in the dilemma of being vegan yet having to cook animal products at his job (something many vegan chefs battle with), why he is thoroughly unimpressed by meat-based cooking, how a plant-based diet helped his health and gave him newfound energy for long shifts, why his favorite city for vegan food is Philadelphia, why you have to be a bad vegan before you're a good one, why he was ready to move to New York when we serendipitously crossed paths, and we talk all about our new restaurant Rewild coming to Boston this summer!
