Announcing Good / True / & Beautiful (Formerly known as Let The Music Play)

Good people!

In March of 2015, I finished reading Seth Godin’s book What to Do When It’s Your Turn and that led me to purchase a microphone to record my first podcast.

Since then, one by one and week by week you, and I have journeyed down the road of discovery that has been led by numerous thought leaders, authors, business minds, and spiritual gurus.

It’s been good.

We’ve uncovered, lived, and spoken our truth.

And it’s been beautiful.

But today we need a change of clothes.

Today we change our name from Let The Music Play to a new name…Good / True / & Beautiful.

Why the name change?

The answer is simple. We are only changing the name to clarify the discussion that we are having here.

By no means do we have the market cornered on what’s good, what’s true, or what’s beautiful. In reality, my life’s work will be to uncover and discover as much of it as I can find and bring it back here for the betterment of your life, mine, and the world at large.

So let’s keep going.

Let’s point out the good everywhere we find it.

Let’s discover new truth and rediscover ancient wisdom to enrich in our lives.

Let’s find beauty in between the lines and outside of the box.

Let’s keep adding chairs to the table….a table set for the world.

And, for the record, I will never stop asking the question, “Am I making music or am I making noise?”

Big love,

Ashton

The Chef Sessions No. 2: Chef Michael Tusk of Quince and Cotogna – San Francisco, CA

Tyson cole (4) (1)

Michael Tusk is the Chef and Owner, along with his wife Lindsay, of two of San Francisco’s most critically acclaimed restaurants, Quince and Cotogna. His approach to Italian and French regional cuisine is refined and modern, taking inspiration from the seasonal bounty of Northern California and his close relationships with local purveyors.

A native of New Jersey, Tusk graduated from Tulane University with a degree in Art History and attended the Culinary Institute of America
in Hyde Park, New York. After completing his studies, Tusk left for Europe to gain experience in Michelin-starred restaurants throughout France and Italy. His experience in Italy’s Barbaresco region resonated most profoundly and was the catalyst for his sustained interest in Northern Italian regional cuisine.

Tusk returned to the United States in 1988 and settled in the San Francisco Bay Area where he contributed to the success of some of the country’s most pioneering, influential restaurants including Stars and Chez Panisse. In December 2003, Tusk and his wife Lindsay opened Quince, and the restaurant quickly became one of San Francisco’s top fine-dining destinations. In November 2010 they opened Cotogna, a bustling, rustic Italian restaurant adjacent to Quince.

The James Beard Foundation has recognized Tusk’s contributions to the industry and named him “Best Chef: Pacific”. Under Tusk’s helm, Quince has also been awarded four stars by the San Francisco Chronicle, three stars from the Michelin Guide and is a distinguished member of Relais & Châteaux.
