Chef Sean Brock, formerly of Charleston's Husk, Minero, and McCrady's, today appeared on CBS This Morning to talk about his career in the restaurant industry and why he walked away from it.
After over two decades in the culinary world, Chef Brock had racked up several impressive feats - he has won two James Beard Awards, operated eight restaurants in five cities, written two best selling cookbooks, and appeared on numerous televisions shows. However, this year, he walked away from it all. Chef Brock told the television show why leaving his old restaurants was "an incredible gift" after rehab and why it's important to prioritize the mental and physical health of a restaurant's staff.
Although Chef Brock currently isn't working in a kitchen, he has plans to open a new restaurant project in Nashville, which will feature several stress relievers for staff - a shorter menu, a special lighting system, and a soundproof sanctuary room. The project, currently called Joyland, is expected to open in the spring.
