Chefs With Issues

Depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders and more. They run rampant in the food community, and they’re so rarely discussed, let alone treated. We owe a debt of pleasure to the chefs, servers, bartenders, purveyors, farmers and journalists who make up the food community, and so many of them are isolated in their pain and illness. I cannot sit by idly as people I care about suffer, so I started Chefs with Issues.

On this site, I invite people involved in the industry (not just chefs) to share their stories and resources for dealing with the particular pressures of restaurant life, so that other people may feel less alone.
