In an industry dominated by men, there is Chef Blythe Beck. She is a powerhouse in pink. And she seems unstoppable. Blythe has cooked for every living US President, except one — although, that may soon change. She got her first gig cooking with Chef Dean Fearing at Dallas’ The Mansion Restaurant. She’s been on TV with some of the most celebrity of celebrity chefs. She was the first Kitchen LTO chef to have her stay extended by popular demand — and she’s launching her very own restaurant this summer.

I always tell people that no matter what you look like, no matter what you sound like, no matter what you believe in, no matter who you go to bed with, at night — the one thing that binds us is food. Everyone has a story to tell through food. And I want to know everyone’s story.

— Chef Blythe Beck

We cut up between her shifts at Kitchen LTO. If you listen all the way to the end, she shares a congratulatory voicemail from, well … you just have to listen.
