Episode 33: Steven Satterfield

Not so long ago, it was in vogue to say that chefs are the new rock stars, but Steven Satterfield played that in reverse. The chef and co-owner of Miller Union (which is about to celebrate its 10-year anniversary) released four records and toured the world with his band Seely before making the switch to full time restaurant life. Since then, he's won a James Beard Award, written a much-beloved vegetable-forward cookbook, gone through cancer treatment, and become a truly thoughtful leader in the kitchen and the community. Satterfield shared what he's learned about hiring smartly, setting healthy boundaries, and the healing power of produce.
