Conversation 70: The Story, Journey and Passion of Chef Stacey Wertzberger
“The more I grow up and the more I learn new things, my passion is to teach people how to cook. I feel like cooking is an art form that’s dying. In our culture, we can go to any restaurant (and think about how many restaurants are out there) and it’s just easier for someone else to cook for you, if you don’t know what you’re doing . ” - Chef Stacey Wertzberger
Today’s conversation is with the woman who gets me excited to cook, try new things in the kitchen, makes me laugh, has 4 kids AND is very passionate about having a lot of color on her plate, my friend and chef, Stacey Wertzberger.
Stacey and I started working together almost 10 year ago and we have collaborated on many cooking and nutrition projects. Some of these have been at work and some of them have been outside of work as we have become friends. Stacey has a realistic and down-to-earth outlook on food and cooking, which applies to how she prepares food in all aspects of her life. Stacey has taught me a lot about food but especially has changed my feelings about cooking, that is doesn’t have to be complicated. In our conversation today we talk food, cooking, kids and how she decided to try a new adventure: completing her first Half Ironman.
Please enjoy my conversation with Stacey.
