Have you been to Hot "G" Dog yet? How does it feel to have your former chefs carrying the torch, at least somewhat?
Sohn: I have not been to Hot "G" Dog. I will say that I wish everyone there the best of luck and success. I know firsthand how tough a business it is.
What do you spend most of your time doing? Do you have any exciting projects in the pipeline that Chicago sausage lovers should be aware of?
Sohn: Most of my time is spent going to Cubs games, traveling, spending time with friends, cooking (I truly enjoy getting back into the kitchen - at home!), reading, writing, rarely having to be anywhere at a certain time. It's incredibly liberating and I highly recommend it to everyone.
I've also been trying to stave off the panic that will inevitably come with needing to provide an income. So far, that's going pretty well. The bourbon helps.
So, how do you take your bourbon?
Sohn: To clarify, I like Scotch, neat, in the winter, and bourbon, on the rocks, in the summer. Having said that, I'm also not a stickler to this rule. I'm happy to have a nice single malt on a toasty summer morning... I mean, evening.
