Chefs Without Restaurants

Chris Spear

Here's a chef show about food and beverage entrepreneurs and people in the culinary world who took a different route. Chris Spear has been working in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years, mostly outside of traditional restaurant settings. In 2010 he started a personal chef business called Perfect Little Bites. Wanting to help other culinary entrepreneurs build and grow their businesses, he created the Chefs Without Restaurants community. On the podcast of the same name, he has conversations with people in the food and beverage industry who also took the road less traveled. They’re caterers, research chefs, cookbook authors, food truck operators, farmers and all sorts of culinary renegades.
