Description

This week, our “2 Barstools and a Knife” episode covers all bases partnering with the Chaplin School's fourth installment of BacardiTALKS. Our "Barstools" continue to rotate as Professor Nathan Dodge takes the week off and Professor Brian Connors leads the charge, interviewing three of the industry's rising stars in hospitality, fine dining, and wine expertise: Andrew "Kappy" Kaplan '03 (FIU Alumnus), VP Culinary Operations, Rachael Ray/Watch Entertainment; Rafaela Dulanto '10 MS '12 (FIU Alumna), French Laundry, Thomas Keller Restaurant Group; and Ray Sholes, Sommelier Beverage Account Manager, Carisam-Samuel Meisel, Inc. The group shares great stories on how they each built their young, but already established, careers. The trio also shares some great advice on networking, taking your shot, and making yourself stand out from the crowded list of applicants that may be applying for any big job opportunity. Chef John Noble Masi crashes the conversation to get the group's take on the culinary world and the importance of knowing the kitchen, as well as the other areas of hospitality. We were so impressed to hear these young executives share their stories and advice. We absolutely know the future of our hospitality business is in great hands! Stay tuned next week for a special end of year episode. New episodes every Friday.
