FoodCrush Podcast: One chef's love affair with the Grateful Dead

Chef Miles Borghraef might be known for his open hearth live fire cooking at Birch + Butcher; but his talents and passions for cooking take a backseat to one thing only: the Grateful Dead.

His is a love affair that began from an early age and has persisted and evolved over the years. During this week's podcast, we chat with him about the origins of his identity as a Deadhead, the albums and songs that rock his world and the ways in which the Grateful Dead have managed to influence his life and work in the restaurant industry. Listen in for passionate discussion, big laughs and a special "Grateful Dead Minute" read by Borghraef himself.
