It's #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and on this episode of the Blackdog Cast I'm chatting to TV chef, restaurateur and cyclist Chris Cosentino. Listeners in the US may recognize Chris from shows like Iron Chef, or have visited one of his restaurants. He's also a James Beard award nominated author with his book Offal Good.
In this episode we chat about the high stress world of restaurant kitchens and why Chris was one of the first high profile chefs to speak publicly about his own mental health issues.
We also talk about sustainable and nose to tail eating, why we should all try eating beef hearts and the suicide of his close friend Anthony Bourdain.
