Chew The Fat With Chef Craig

Listen in to hear Francoise speak about her journey to become a rising star food writer!

Francoise Villeneuve is currently working as a Features Writer for an on-line culinary magazine. Her articles have been published in New York, NY and Richmond, VA. After graduating from Columbia University and recovering from the tragedy of not being able to read Camus books for a living, she attended The Culinary Institute of America, where her scone consumption rose drastically. Fluent in French and Italian, she’s worked in some of New York’s top restaurants, including Aquavit and Park Avenue Cafe, as well as Chicago’s Spiaggia, and covered food, wine and travel-related stories in a number of publications, from The Richmond Times-Dispatch to Time Out New York. After all that food, she spends her spare time shopping for progressively larger pants.

Produced and recorded in the studios of Charlottesville Radio Group, in conjunction with Chef Craig Hartman, Chew the Fat is the podcast that gives you totally raw interviews with leading chefs, restaurateurs, wine makers and other food artisans. These interviews are unscripted and outside the realm of publicists, conducted by accomplished Chef Craig Hartman. Hartman delivers these interviews with ease, sensitivity and a sense of insider savvy. The goal of these interviews is to expose the heart and soul of these sensitive, artistic and driven people. This podcast is for anyone who loves food and wine, especially those that want to know every aspect about who is behind the artisan food and wine that we have.
