Published on: 27th April, 2022

Phil Tessier is an award-winning chef, father, author, coach and innovator. In 2015, he became the first ever American chef to place on the podium at what is considered the Olympics of cuisine, the biennial Bocuse d’Or Competition in Lyon, France. Tessier took home the Silver medal… and two years later, he coached the 2017 U.S. Team to win the gold. In this episode, we discuss his journey from Williamsburg, Virginia through some of the best kitchens in the world. His social impact spans across many causes including feeding those in need, mentoring the next generation of great chefs, and more. Some of this work is done through the Rudd Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Ment’or BKB Foundation. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Chef Phil Tessier.
