On today’s show we welcome chef Marco Canora. Marco is the owner of both Hearth restaurant in New York and Brodo, a bone broth company that started out as a little window outside the restaurant. Only a few years ago, it was unheard of to be able to buy organic, grass-fed bone broth at a grocery store. Now, you can find it just about anywhere. In this conversation, we discuss Marco’s chain of successful restaurants, his passion for cooking, the benefits of bone broth, and why you should put that coffee cup down and swap it for bone broth instead.
