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!

Chef Marcus Paslay is spinning plates, so to speak. He operates two successful Fort Worth restaurants, Clay Pigeon and Piattello Italian Kitchen (both affectionately named for the flying targets he loves to shoot), and manages to balance his family’s interest with the growing business.  We sat down with the affable chefpreneur for this week’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  “Good food, well prepared feeds my soul”, says Marcus, who started his career in the restaurant industry as a “working tourist”.  “Tune in” to hear about his journeys, and his sage advice for aspiring chefs and restaurateurs.  Welcome to the podcast devoted to introducing you to the likes, loves and life of the men and women behind the eats and drinks you love.  You can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes.  Please remember:  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner, tell ’em reservations!

Singin’ a sweet savory song

Jim White and Dean FearingWorld famous chef Dean Fearing is one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.  His heralded eponymous restaurant in The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is sublime, and doing great business.  He continues to explore and refine his elevated American cuisine.  But, if he had ventured down the road that beckoned in his youth, you might never have been greeted by him at Fearing’s or The Mansion on Turtle Creek.  Or, any other restaurant for that matter. What?!?  No Lobster Tacos?  No Tortilla Soup? No Antelope on Coriander/Smoked Pepita Pesto?  Find out what we’re talking about as Dean joins us on today’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKAL.  It’s the podcast devoted to bringing you life stories behind the men and women who create the flavors you love.  Catch all our conversations with top chefs and winemakers on VOKALnow.com and on iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner….tell ’em, reservations!
