After being interviewed by his sister at our StoryBooth, Richard Gray Storch showed us his garden. He cultivates vegetables and herbs on a plot of land beside the fraternity house that employs him as a chef. During his interview he talked about where his passion for food and gardening stem from. Growing up in Tulsa, OK, in the 50s and 60s, he said there was little culinary diversity. His palette would be awakened and stimulated during the regular family trips and excursions that took them out of state, through new territory, towards delectable discoveries. According to Richard, this was before homogenized fast food, when people ate and cooked locally.
