This podcast is a look back at our first conversation with Don, in February of 2017.

Don Salamone, like many others, landed in Portland because of its cost of entry as a chef.  Armed with a solid work ethic and a resume that included stops at Michelin-starred restaurants, he opened a food cart, Burger Stevens.  We talk about what Michael Russell's glowing review meant to him, how he came up with that name, and where Don's sights are set.
