Cool Kids Cook #46 – Rerun Interview with Chef Paul Prudhomme

Posted in: Cooking, Food, Recipe

Hey Young Chefs!

In memory of Legendary Chef Paul Prudhomme, I am rerunning this episode with his interview. I was very saddened when I heard of his passing. He was an incredible person, chef mentor, and inspiration to me.

Chef Paul Prudhomme was an internationally recognized name in the culinary industry. He was a television star, a cookbook author, a restaurateur, and a spice mogul. He has propelled the distinctive cuisine of his native Louisiana into the international spotlight and continues to push the limits by creating exciting and new American and international dishes. Chef Paul learned the importance of using the freshest ingredients while cooking at his mother’s side and continues to use only earth’s finest harvests. Chef Paul was always adventurous. His strong curiosity of life and cultural customs motivated him to leave Louisiana in his early 20’s and travel across the United States to experience every culinary environment possible. From an Indian reservation all the way to the finest, five-star restaurant, Chef Paul learned to love, appreciate and blend the flavors of his younger years with those of many other cultures.
