We all have heroes in our field that we look to for inspiration. They lay out the rules we ought to follow, and sometimes, how to break them. This week, Tony and Chef Cindy recount some of the chefs and writers who have been influential to their food and wine philosophies. Chefs include Georges Blanc, Michel Guérard, Julia Child, Edna Lewis and more!

This is a rebroadcast.

Tony Foreman is the founder and co-owner of Baltimore's premier restaurant company, Foreman Wolf, comprised of six restaurants and two retail wine stores. The combined staff is over 350 employees and has been a major driving force in putting Baltimore on the map in the world of fine wines and dining.
Cindy Wolf is the executive chef at Charleston and was a 2006, 2008, and 2014 James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic. Chef Wolf's cuisine is backed by French fundamentals and grounded in preparations that emphasize the natural flavors of the very finest products.
