Breaking Bread with Paul Kahan
One of the most rewarding things as a chef and restaurateur, is to see young, talented, hard-working employees spend time learning their trade, then eventually moving on to start their own businesses. In this show, Steve and Rick break bread with one of Rick’s former employees, Paul Kahan. He has been on quite a hot streak the past decade or so, having launched a restaurant group responsible for such local gems as Blackbird, The Publican, Avec, The Violet Hour, Big Star and Nico Osteria. They talk mistakes being a part of creating great food, supporting staff and moving into the United Center and O’Hare Airport.
