This week on BTR is dedicated to one of my other passions: cooking! (And, of course, eating…) Food + fashion go hand in hand for many reasons, and no one knows that better than this week’s guest, chef-turned-designer Alex McCrery. After more than 17 years working in the food industry, Alex became dissatisfied with the frumpy uniform options available to professional chefs. His personal frustration led to research, which ultimately led to the creation of a new, uniquely stylish label of cooking garments called Tilit Chef Goods. On today’s show, Alex talks about his Southern-meets-Italian cooking background, what led to the launch of Tilit, the aesthetic he aims to offer through the label, a few of his own fashion and food favorites, and more.
Plus, a decadent playlist of tracks including a song off the brand new album from Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer, along with music from Tijuana Panthers, Arc Iris, and New Orleans’ Generationals. So grab your cast iron pan and follow a new recipe for fashion, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
