During the episode, we learn about how he became a chef, what it’s like cooking with his disease, and how he has channeled his diagnosis to raise funds for Kennedy’s Disease research through cooking. With the support of his business partner Dan Van Rite and his extraordinary staff, they are putting out some of the most delicious food in Milwaukee.
