Today we remember Chef Maxcel Hardy, who last week passed away unexpectedly at the age of 40.

He stopped by the studio back in 2018 for a great chat about his life, his businesses, his food and more.

A lot of was different in Detroit six years ago, and some is the same.

But that life story? Interesting. His personality? Warm. And there was so much more that happened after this conversation for him, like being named one of the 16 Best Black Chefs in America.

From Coop to Jed's to River Bistro to charity work and more, Hardy made a big impact in the culinary community.

The conversation is with my former co-host Sven Gustafson, who moved on during the pandemic to far bigger and better things over in the public relations space for a group of physicians.
