FoodCrush Podcast: A chef's life with Dane Baldwin of The Diplomat

Every chef has a unique story to tell. On this week's podcast, we talk with Dane Baldwin, chef and owner of The Diplomat about his passion for food and his culinary journey.

From his first food-related job to opening his own restaurant, Baldwin shares stories about his early years working at Sendik's to his first cooking gig in the kitchen at the former Gil's Cafe. Along the way, he shares tales from his work at Bartolotta's, SURG Restaurant Group and – finally – his own restaurant. We also chat about how it feels to make the James Beard Foundation's semifinalists' list and what it takes to recreate the flavors of a fast-food burger to create The Diplomac.
