The Fearless Kitchen Podcast 44: Chef Manish Tyagi, San Francisco

Chef Manish Tyagi

Manish Tyagi has followed his passion, through fate and circumstance, through the hand of God and most importantly through his own diligence and determination to succeed.

At every chance Manish said, “yes sure”. He found himself at hospitality school rather than engineering. He found himself being interviewed by an Executive Chef instead of a Food & Beverage Manager and ended up in a kitchen.

When a phone call came from the USA, following an award he received in India, he said yes and jumped on a plane, with his wife, to a new country and a new adventure and is now making waves in the US city of San Francisco which officially has the largest number of restaurants per capita.

His new venture August 1 Five, named for the Indian day of Independence is a unique blend of true Indian family food lovingly caressed into a modern presentation for the diner.

His dream is to bring you the story of his own journey, of his family and of the country he has for now left behind. Manish shares all this and more – his parents have had their visas revoked to visit, his wife is unable to work in the USA too, but they have the grit to stick this out and to live every day thankful for the opportunities that have come to them.

When you listen I guarantee you will be uplifted and energised and probably ready to book a ticket and then a table to visit this Chef in the heart of San Francisco.

Food, Family & Friends Podcast 43: Food Writer, Editor – Niki Bezzant

Niki Bezzant & Vanessa Baxter

Niki Bezzant is a writer, a speaker, an editor and an eater! She loves food and all of it. She is a believer in balance and speaks out against diets and ‘faddish’ eating types of lifestyles. Why? Because to her they are unsustainable. Her feeling is that people have become obsessed by what they can’t or shouldn’t eat rather than concentrating on a balance of lovely fresh foods – mostly from the land and the sea – that nourish us – body and soul.

Niki is the President of the Food Writers of NZ Association and Editor at Large of the Healthy Food Guide NZ. She has a TedX talk – Cupcakes and Carrots which is fabulous, and she can be heard often on the panel at RadioNZ. She is passionate about clothes and sews her own – she loves vintage designs (and rainy weather which is the perfect excuse for cooking and sewing). You will hear loads from her in our chat and you can also find out more about Niki by visiting her website.

Food, Family & Friends Podcast 41: Peter Gordon – Chef, Restaurateur and Writer

Peter Gordon is a Chef extraordinaire, Consultant Chef to AirNZ, passionate food lover, Executive Chef of The Providores in London, The Sugar Club and Bellota in Auckland, and co-founder of Cross Town Doughnuts in London.

He is a caring supporter of many charities – all of which have touched him personally. This Founding Father of fusion cuisine (as he is known in NZ) has a wonderful story telling ability that draws you in and has you wishing you could join him on his next adventure. How this man has packed so much into his days and life to date is extraordinary. That he still gives his time for fans like me is testimony to the wonderful person he is known to be.

Seriously, everyone I spoke to about him, without fail, told me how lovely he is. Yet, I was still so nervous to interview him. But I can assure you his reputation is confirmed – this man in a delight. Caring, genuine, fun, and crazy busy, Peter is desperate for more time in a year and would love to go and hang out to cook with the locals in South America. I truly hope he gets there because he so deserves to do that for himself.
Enjoy sharing a little of Peter’s journey with me, here, on my podcast.
