Episode 12: Rafie Rodriguez, Culture Cafe at Kombucha Town

This week I am back downtown, talking to Rafie Rodriguez, Chef of The Culture Cafe. The Culture Cafe is the restaurant of Kombucha Town, the leading name in Kombucha brewing here in Bellingham. The Cafe is located in the basement of the Herald building, taking advantage of the warehouse style room that used to print newspapers. It's big and inviting, with murals and large wooden tables. There are games to play with friends, as well as a whole array of live events happening every week, from music to comedy and trivia to yoga and movement. You can find the Culture Cafe at 210 E Chestnut in Bellingham. Visit them on the web at kombuchatown.com/culturecafe.

Chef Talk Podcast is a monthly show bringing you interviews from kitchens around Bellingham and Whatcom County. Having this podcast helps to fulfill one of the core values of Sparklefish Wellness- Elevating the Industry. By creating visibility for people who work in kitchens and opening up the conversation about what it's like to work in the back of the house, I hope to help our community make a connection between the food they order and the people who make it.
