Neal Harden knows his way around plants. He knows how to dice ‘em, slice ‘em, present ‘em and combine ‘em in ways that makes them taste better than they’ve probably ever tasted before. Neal, the chef de cuisine of ABCV, a plant-based mecca and the third installment of the Jean George run ABC restaurants, is nothing short of a plant-whisperer. From breakfast to dinner he’s non-stop pumping out some of the most innovative and palate-pleasing ways to eat plants. It really takes some sort of plant guru to serve a simple plate of sauerkraut to rave reviews and accolades such as  “groundbreaking.” JUST SAUERKRAUT. That you eat with a fork. In our chat, which he kindly recorded at ABCV during some down time, if such a thing exists in a booked out for months restaurant, Neal humbly gives us a backstage view of what it’s like to run and execute a world-class plant-based restaurant. Although he isn’t able to give us all reservations...even to breakfast.


You’ll Hear:


  • The top-chef-like cooking audition Neal had with Jean George.
  • What it’s like cooking for celebs, food critics and top chefs!
  • How, for Neal, good food = caring.
  • The difference between cooking in a restaurant and cooking at home.
  • The surprising (to Neal) top selling dish at ABCV.
  • And so much more!
