Patrick Mulvaney: Chef, Restaurateur + Farm-to Fork and Community Leader

I Used to be Somebody

In Ireland the most important person is a seanchaí (story teller). Their stories keep the community together and thriving. Patrick Mulvaney is such a person. We were honored and a little nervous to serve Patrick a Mai Tai in the Landau Tiki bar this week. Why? Because he's an award-winning chef and owner of an incredible restaurant. Even though Patrick is very busy as a restaurateur he sees his role in the community as way more important. He is a leading force behind the Farm-to Fork movement that has swept the nation, his restaurant during the pandemic served 100,000+ meals to the community and he's also one of the key forces behind the "I Got Your Back Project" that deals directly with the mental health crisis in the restaurant business. This is an episode that you won't forget! • More about Patrick Mulvaney and Mulvaney B&L: https://mulvaneysbl.com/about • Episode Content: https://pickleballmediahq.com/blog/Patrick-Mulvaney-Interview-It-Really-Is-A-Wonderful-Life • This week's Sponsor: lovemyheartstudy.com • Subscribe to the I Used to be Somebody newsletter:  https://pickleballmediahq.com/contact/subscribe

Local Restaurants Give Back – Chef Patrick Mulvaney

Farm To Table Talk

The pandemic of 2020 has led to the closing of most restaurants, except for carry out and delivery. We do what we have to do, but we miss our favorite restaurants. Like most other restaurants Farm To Fork Restauant, Mulvaneys B&L had to close their doors and lay off their staff. Unlike most restaurants they almost immediately started looking for ways they could get back to what they do best, supporting local farmers and making meals for the public— especially for the needy, senior shut ins and school age kids who were missing meals because their school closed. Along with other like-minded leading Chefs they decided to get back in the kitchen and prepare meals for those most in need -- creating "Family Meal", a chef-driven initiative to mobilize restaurants as micro-commissaries to create meals for people in need. In a depressed restaurant industry, their action is encouraging. To share how they are again making family meals and making a difference in their community, we have table talk with Chef Patrick Mulvaney. To everyone who's asks, "How can I help?" You can click here to donate to the Family Meal Initiative: https://bit.ly/2xzvOpY Every $20 raised through this campaign pays for one “Meal Kit” designed to feed up to four people or feed one person for up to four days. #saverestaurants #familymeals #SacramentoProud #SacramentoStrong

California Groundbreakers

This event was recorded on April 30, 2019 This "Groundbreakers Q&A" is with two guys who know their way around a kitchen. Rick Mahan and Patrick Mulvaney are Sacramento's Top Chefs. Their restaurants, The Waterboy (opened in 1996) and Mulvaney B&L (in 2006), set the bar for fine dining in Sacramento, and they're still atop the list of places worth opening up your wallet for a memorable meal.
