Jeff is talking to Chef John Folse, restaurant owner, television host, leading authority on cajun food, and devout Catholic.
From growing up in the swamps of Louisiana during segregation, to serving food to President Reagan and Soviet Leader Gorbachevat, to meeting St. John Paul II, Chef John says he strives everyday to ask God, “What do you want me to do now?”
Snippet from the Show
It was fifteen years before I woke up in the middle of the night one night, I sat up in bed and I said, “Oh my God, I did not go to Russia to serve Reagan and Gorbachevat, God sent me to Russia to bring her a Bible.” -John Folse
Luke 12:42-48 – And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing. Truly, I tell you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the menservants and the maidservants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will punish him, and put him with the unfaithful. And that servant who knew his master’s will, but did not make ready or act according to his will, shall receive a severe beating. But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, shall receive a light beating. Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.
