Its a sad week for most of us in the culinary world & even in the world of social media… a friend has passed away & it happened at a very young age, 44 to be exact.
Chef Carl Ruiz, a dude that I got to know over the last year & felt lucky enough to be able to call him a friend.
A few months ago I had the honor of chatting with Carl after a crazy lunch in Philly @ the reading terminal market, where I witnessed the beginnings of the world of #Ruizing.
Carl had an infectious almost boyish personality, his laugh & comments made people stop & listen & its one of the reasons that I wanted to air this episode one more time. I feel that we bonded a bit on this episode & im really honored to say that I had the opportunity to spend some time with him.
