In our monthly Sound Bites segment in partnership with Sauce Magazine, host Steve Potter spoke with the magazine’s executive editor Ligaya Figueras and two local chefs whose work takes them outside of the restaurant: nutrition specialist for the St. Louis Cardinals Simon Lusky and SSM DePaul Health Center sous chef Kore Wilbert. Lusky also is co-owner Athlete Eats, a small business that started out cooking for pro athletes in the off-season and now includes a restaurant on Cherokee Street.
