In the past year, Kwame Onwuachi has become one of the fastest rising star chefs in America. His DC restaurant, Kith and Kin, is widely considered one of the best in the country. But he went through countless twists and turns to get there. His story is so wild that he wrote a memoir, Notes From A Young Black Chef, that's being made into a movie starring Lakeith Stanfield.
This week Kwame shares the first half of that story live on stage, in conversation with Dan at the Miracle Theatre in Washington, DC.
