Chef Erick Williams on Legacy & Virtue

In this special episode, I chat with chef Erick Williams, owner and executive chef at Virtue Restaurant & Bar in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighbourhood. Williams is a Chicago native with a storied career, and this year was named a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation Award: Best Chef Midwest. On the show we talk about why Chicago is such a great food town, Erick’s unique path and inspiration for his cooking, and what he hopes diners walk away with after they eat at Virtue. Note: this show was recorded in March before restaurants and businesses nationwide shut down because COVID-19 and if we sound happier about the state of things it’s because we were. I hope you will listen to this episode and support independent restaurants like Virtue who need your help now more than ever.A Hungry Society is powered by Simplecast.
