This week I had the great pleasure of interviewing Tom Ferry, a self-proclaimed non-foodie, first time podcaster and somone who remembers a time when Silicon Valley was still called Santa Clara Valley. For him, food has always been more of a reason to get his (big) family together and be social. So while it played an important role at getting everyone at the same table, it wasn’t as important. Despite all that, he definitely still cares about food. As long as it’s a dessert. And has chocolate in it. Like his Mom’s Chocolate Rice Krispies.
