From Teenage Skater Kid to Chef Extraordinaire: Chef Shon Foster’s Wild Ride
This episode features a conversation with Chef Shon Foster, executive chef and owner of Sego restaurant in Kanab, and Pete Codella, Go Utah’s managing director of business services. The restaurant serves a selection of regional New American cuisine focusing on what makes the country unique and eclectic through its social plate dining concept.
Foster shares his story of slowly starting a business by selling one sandwich at a time and building a long-term game plan, turning a job into a career, and gaining an appreciation for the finest ingredients. He also shares the importance of making mistakes, his food philosophy that food should tell a story, and why food is important to a community’s culture. Foster comments on Utah’s foodie scene, the state’s recent gain in notoriety as a must-experience dining destination, the countless mentors that made him the chef he is today, and much more.
