Episode 82: Timothy Hollingsworth
In what feels like a different lifetime, The Final Table star and vaunted chef Timothy Hollingsworth sat down in the Food & Wine studio to talk about his path from dishwasher to chef de cuisine at The French Laundry to striking out on his own as a restaurateur (Otium LA, CJ Boyd's, and Freeplay LA)—as well as using food to connect with a parent who has dementia. So much has shifted since then as a result of the pandemic, but while circumstances may be vastly different, some lessons remain the same: work hard, learn your craft, listen to your gut, and take time out to connect with your loved ones because things can change in an instant.
