CHIC Podcast #219: Food News for March

Chef Wook and I talk about the name change the CHIC Podcast is about to undergo. We’re changing our name to This Week in Food. The new name of our school is Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.

This week we cover some food news including new coffee offerings from Starbucks, the tomato shortage, the chicken wing explosion and how restaurants are marketing themselves on the web.
