It’s no secret that COVID has caused massive disruptions across the foodservice industry—but the oft-quoted line about not letting a crisis go to waste has never been more relevant—especially for our guest on this episode of Club + Resort Talks, sponsored by Minor’s.
James Allen, CEC, is the Executive Chef of Blackthorn Club at The Ridges in Jonesborough, Tenn. He was actually the first person in his county to test positive for the virus, which lead to closing the club for a weeks. As Chef recovered, he put his creative brain to work, reshaping the club’s culinary program for the better over the long term.
