Indomitable human spirit

Kent Rathbun and Jim White

Jim White joins Kent Rathbun in his kitchen at home.

Celebrity chef Kent Rathbun is our guest this week on “Wining and Dining with Jim White”.  Join us on VOKAL for the latest episode of the podcast devoted to the people who create the eats and drinks you love.  No doubt you’ve heard the old saying “I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet”.  The message inspires wonderful lessons like humility, gratitude, and acceptance.  It comes to mind as I consider the rough patch Kent Rathbun and his family have been through over the last year.  Consider these predicaments:  Your association with the restaurant and the business that brought you fame and fortune is finished;  torn asunder and still in litigation-even the use of your own name and likeness under challenge.  Then, within a short time, you suffer a near fatal accident on a family vacation, a lengthy hospital stay, and months of physical therapy (ongoing).  These are things that might knock a man down and make him not want to get back up.  Ah, but not Kent Rathbun.  Find out what he’s doing to write the next chapter in his life on today’s podcast, which could be subtitled:  “Angels can fly because they take themselves so lightly”.   Catch all of our podcasts on iTunes and on Vokalnow.com.  And, remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!
