I had such a great time chatting with Chef Chris Hill! We talked about our similar experiences and career paths going from the kitchen into the world of media and entrepreneurship and we also talked about the state of the online world today.
Chris Hill is a self-trained chef who grew up in Atlanta, went to the University of Alabama and pursued a career in consulting before moving to Virginia to follow his passion – food.
He opened his first restaurant at the age of 28 where he grew into the role of executive chef of 3 Way Cafe, a gourmet sandwich bistro in downtown Norfolk. After a half decade, he sold his share in the business to pursue other ventures within the culinary world that include TV, speaking and consulting. Additionally, he is an adjunct professor of marketing and management at the Culinary Institute of Virginia.
Chris has built a six-figure social media following centered around his personal brand and is best known for his work on leadership, his books, including Making the Cut: What Separates the Best From the Rest, 2 TEDx talks and his mission of helping hospitality industry workers lead fulfilling, successful careers. He regularly speaks at hospitality industry events such as the NRA Show, the ACF and at top culinary schools sharing his message of both inspiration and practicality for the modern culinary professional.
