Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
18: Brother Luck, celebrity chef, on Top Chef and James Beard, mental health, #nolucksgiven and making bold decisions when the chips are down
Chef Brother Luck is the owner of two restaurants in Colorado Springs: Four by Brother Luck and Lucky Dumpling. And he's got a new project underway, even in the heat of the economic and health crises of 2020, The Lucky Lounge. Brother has also been a crowd favorite in the celebrity chef universe of the Food Network, where he was a finalist on Chopped, and where he beat Chef Bobby Flay on the Network’s show, Beat Bobby Flay. He also competed in seasons 15 and 16 of Bravo’s Top Chef. We get into some traumatic and life-altering stuff from Brother’s early years: lessons he learned from his dad, and then the road he took when his dad died way too soon. We talk about mental health and the dark emotional space Brother was in a couple years ago when something -- call it divine intervention or whatever it needs to be called -- shook him out of it. We talk about facing fear and making bold decisions even when the chips are down, like now, when he's taking on and building out The Lucky Lounge. We talk about Brother’s hashtag #nolucksgiven, and how and why he uses his social media and public platforms for good. More at humanitou.com.
