190. Rebroadcast: Soapboxisode – 12+1 New (year) Resolutions for 2015 on Food with Ronsley Vaz

Ronsley is the Chief Food Sharer at Bond Appetit, a company that unites people over food. He is the host of Australia’s #1 food podcast on iTunes and the author of the upcoming book “Bond Appetit – Uniting peak performers over food.” Ronsley has been cooking for over 19 years. He has worked in a large kitchen as part of a brigade of chefs, as well as started and run his own fresh food restaurant specialising in uniquely flavoured food. He knows how hard the food industry makes it to stock and produce fresh food when the processed food comes pre-packed, pre-cut, pre-crumbed and sometimes, even pre-cooked.
