In today’s podcast episode I’m speaking with Craig Rispoli, a renowned chef with over a decade of high volume production, restaurant, retail, R&D, and catering experience. Having previously worked with companies like Gourmet Boutique, Financier Patisserie, Dean &DeLuca and Fresh Direct, Chef Rispoli joined fresh&co as the Executive Chef. There, he leads the culinary development and innovation team where he oversees all seasonal menu roll-outs, menu enhancements, and recipe development for all corporate and franchise locations.


Chef Craig shares fun insight into what it’s like to be a chef at fresh&co as well as tips for developing healthy eating habits. Here are some of my favorite takeaways from our conversation:

  • When it comes to eating healthfully, it’s important to enjoy what you’re eating, so keep your palate entertained by considering both the taste and nutritional value of the food you eat.
  • The cost of putting good food in your body is nothing compared to the cost of the healthcare you’ll need if you don’t.
  • The best and easiest way to build flavor in the meals you prepare is to eat seasonally.
  • Healthy living is being happy with who you are, what you’re doing, where you’re going and where you’ve been.
