My Food Job Rocks!
About This Show
There is very little awareness of what the people in the food industry actually do. This stems back to the lack of knowledge and awareness of the range of degree courses and programs available that will equip them for a career in food.
My FoodJobRocks! by Adam Yee is the first podcast of its kind that allows listeners to hear directly from people who are in the food industry and have a passion for what they do. They share how they became involved in food and describe what it is they do, plus a few more fun questions just to keep things entertaining. Listen to them here, and stay tuned for a new episode every Monday.

Ep. 056 - Learning to Cook in Corporate with Kimber Lew, R and D Coordinator at La Terra Fina
5 days ago
Today’s episode is with Kimber Lew, R and D Coordinator at La Terra Fina. They make quiches and dips. Kimber is a graduate from UC Davis and is pretty involved in her chapter at Northern California IFT’ section. The biggest highlight in this interview is Kimber’s experience with research chefs in her previous company. They taught her not only how to cook, but to taste which I think all product developers should know how to do. It sure has helped Kimber progress in her career. Other than that, we talk a ton about how to get a product to market, awesome food science titles and most importantly, an important discussion about Ramen Noodles.

About Kimber Lew Kimber Lew is an SF Bay Area native whose path towards the food industry began while watching Alton Brown's Good Eats show on the Food Network. She graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor's of Science in Food Science, and worked in the research lab of Dr. Charlie Bamforth (aka the Pope of Foam) studying the properties of beer. She ultimately found her passion in product development, and worked at both Valley Fine Foods and La Terra Fina, the latter of which she's been at for over two years. She aspires to make food products that are not only tasty and healthy for consumers, but for the planet as well. She's also an active member of the Northern California section of the Institute of Food Technologists -- currently she serves on the section's Scholarship Committee and writes articles for the section's newsletter, The Hornblower. Outside of work, Kimber is an avid yogi and indoor rock climber, and enjoys cooking and baking for her loved ones when not exploring other ways to procrastinate on folding her clean laundry.
