Lazarus Lynch on early success, family recipes, and breaking the cookbook mold

‚ÄúPeople respect you more when you are yourself‚ÄĒand you get a lot more engagement when you are fully who you are."

This week, we're excited to welcome LAZARUS LYNCH to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.

Lazarus is a two-time winner of Chopped and host of Snapchat's first-ever cooking show. His first cookbook is Son of a Southern Chef.

In today's show, we'll talk with Lazarus about how he got his start (and his foot in the door at Food Network), where he finds inspiration, and how he approached his first cookbook. Plus: We'll play Salt + Spine game with Lazarus.
