What Does a Chef do on Tour?

What Does a Chef do on Tour?

This week we are joined by Mary Westfall, one of the most accomplished personal Vegan Chefs in the music industry. Although she does not tour much anymore – we can partly blame Neil for that one. Together they have started a family and a restaurant, and a life in Orlando, Florida. Regardless Mary’s story is still just as relevant. We are happy to have her on the show because we feel she is a great self-made success story. There are a lot of known jobs on the road – and some lesser-known. So if you like to cook, and you want to see the world – this might be the job for you. However, even if you do not want to cook – there are plenty of level-ups and stories packed into this episode.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• Mary’s journey to becoming a personal vegan chef
• The daily work required to be a traveling chef
• The importance of being able to adapt on the road
• How Neil and Mary met on tour with Blink-182
