Listen to Episode

Karen has been invited twice to cook at the acclaimed James Beard House in New York City. Karen has served as a personal chef for Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise, Francis Ford Coppola, Jim Jarmush, and more.

I had a wonderful time talking with Karen where you’ll learn:

  • Once an artist, always an artist. Why she didn’t conform and has always pushed the envelope
  • The relationships that shape you early on and how this impacts your craft
  • Even after four decades in how she has hustled to survive the Covid-19 pandemic
  • From concept to execution, how she launches her restaurants
  • Celebrity or not- we’re all the same, and how she’s confident with her craft. “This is what you do; this is what I do.”
  • And more!
