Get to know Paul, find out what made him want to become a board member, what he loves most about RCA and his favorite meal.
What made you want to become a board member?
I wanted to give back to an organization that has helped me immensely. I also wanted to learn more about the RCA and it’s inner workings, and I felt that getting more involved would help my career that much more.
What is your favorite thing about RCA?
The people. The food R&D community has become like a huge group of good friends to me, that’s the main reason why I LOVE the conference, it’s like running into one friend after another all week!
What is your favorite meal?
It is crawfish season in south Louisiana where I live, so a crawfish boil is at the top of the list right now. Eastern NC BBQ, Thai curries, and a well done cassoulet are favorites as well!
