On today’s episode, we sit down with Tim Wiechmann, the award-winning chef and restaurateur (and musician) behind some of Boston's most beloved restaurants, including Bronwyn, T&B Wood-Fired and Turenne Bagels.

A first generation German-American, Tim played guitar professionally with jazz and blues musicians like Ron Levy and Melvin Sparks throughout his 20s. He ended up pursuing a culinary career and worked in internationally acclaimed kitchens like Taillevent, L’Arpege and Joel Robuchon, before returning to Boston in 2007 to open his first restaurant, T.W.Food. In 2013, Tim opened Bronwyn, the German-inspired tavern and beer garden, which received Esquire’s Best New Restaurant award in 2013 and a positive review from The Boston Globe; followed by T&B Wood-Fired and Turenne Bagels, both of which are centered around a custom stone hearth wood-fired oven.

We also head into our archives for a perfect Sunday set from Moon Hooch.
