Episode #59: Alamexo – Acclaimed Chef Shows Victory is Spicy


Some people spend their whole lives chasing their dreams. For Matt Lake, his life path became clear at the young age of 11. His parents took over a general store and began a small deli catering business, and Matt quickly dove into the family business. Whether helping run an event, putting together deli trays, or interacting with customers, Matt fell in love with the food industry. And he fell hard. So hard, in fact, that at the ripe age of 18 he enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America.

Episode #45: Watchtower Cafe – The Idea That Never Went Away


Salt Lake City has a secret. It’s full of nerds. Tabletop games, cosplaying, cons, comics, geeky podcasts. Hell, we were even voted one of the nerdiest states in the country. The amount of accessibility to various geeky interests is growing, and what was once an underground and mocked culture has risen to the top of the pop culture pile. It’s now hip to be a nerd.

Episode #43: Uinta Brewing Company – It All Comes Back To The Beer


Uinta Brewing Company opened their doors in 1993 with the sole focus on craft brewing – no pubs or bars, just outstanding beer. Salt Lake City wasn’t known as a brewing mecca, and previous breweries had all opened with a restaurant attached. To outsiders it seemed like co-founders Will Hamill and Dell Vance were taking a big risk. But they had an ace up their sleeve: they knew how to make really, really good beer.

Episode #42: Chapul – Eat Crickets For A Better Future


Patrick Crowley doesn’t have a typical start in the food industry. With a background in water conservation, a majority of Patrick’s professional career was dedicated to hydrology and analyzing water resources. This passion led to the discovery of a TED talk by Marcel Dicke titled “Why Not Eat Insects?” This talk ignited a thought in Patrick’s head that couldn’t be squashed. Was there a more sustainable way to get our protein?

Episode #41: Manoli’s – A New Restaurant Reinventing Greek Food, One Small Plate at a Time


If you were to ask an out-of-state visitor what they know about Salt Lake City, they typically default to a few stock answers. Mormonism, Jello, and snow. What many are surprised to learn about is the large and vibrant Greek community that fills the area with art, culture, and delicious food. One such restaurant is Manoli’s, a new Greek restaurant that is quickly changing the game for finer Greek cuisine.

Episode #39: Beehive Cheese – Have Your Cheese and Eat it Too


When life gives you an opportunity, you have two choices. Either ignore it, or go all in. For Pat Ford, life’s opportunity came in the form of a mid-life crisis. After a successful career as a real estate developer, the energy and excitement that came from his job began to disappear. The constant pressure of deadlines, demanding bosses and commuting kept adding up, and Pat was in need of a change.

Episode #38: Rawtopia – A Food-Inspired Spiritual Awakening


Omar Abou-Ismail doesn’t have your typical restaurant owner story. Originally born in Lebanon, Omar and his family traveled and lived throughout West Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, and the Middle East, and eventually settled in Utah. After studying geophysics and mechanical engineering at the University of Utah, he began working with the U.S. Navy as a geophysicist. And then, in 2005, he opened Rawtopia. You could say it was a bit of a leap in career.
