Episode 66: Tap Tradition for Affordable, Healthy Meal Inspiration with Chris Scott

Chef Chris Scott’s signature soul food with a twist is inspired by his grandmother’s southern flavors and the German and Dutch cuisine of the Amish community he grew up in. The roots of his food culture, like so many others, is a testament to how much deliciousness can come from the most humble ingredients. With so many of us trying to stretch our own grocery dollar these days, Chef Scott helps us see how tapping into tradition, like that of the Amish soul food he was raised on, can help us find affordable, healthy meal inspiration.

Adored finalist on season 15 of Bravo’s Top Chef, Chris Scott also competed on OWN’s The Great Soul Food Cook Off and will be seen as a judge on Beat Bobby Flay, Bobby Flay’s Triple Thread and more Food Network programming in 2023. Chef Chris has opened several restaurants in New York, including Brooklyn Commune and ButterFunk Biscuit in Harlem. His cookbook, Homage, offers readers Chris Scott’s perspective of food as a vehicle to community.
