EstoCast: Paul Lillakas Shares His Path to Becoming a TV Chef

When Paul Lillakas describes his profession, it becomes apparent that thinking on your feet is just another part of working in the media and as a chef.

Listen to the newest episode of EstoCast, where Paul Lillakas shares his path to becoming a TV chef, what watching The Simpsons has taught him, which legendary people he would invite to a dinner party (and what he'd cook for them)… and the conclusion to one of his nerve-wracking early live television moments!

In this episode of EstoCast, Estonian-Canadian chef and recipe writer Paul Lillakas tells us all about:

 ✅ how taking part in a TV competition changed his life forever

 ✅ how a Craigslist ad got him work with a world-famous DJ

 ✅ his transition from developing recipes for magazines to cooking on television

 ✅ which of his heroes he’d invite to a dinner party (plus what he’d cook for them)

 ✅ how comedy has made him who he is

 ✅ and much more!
