Chef Laura: FIFO that FOMO!

Love your articles Chef Laura. However as for this one I sure hope you and your chef friends have it wrong.....except for the Beer in your Keurig. As a simple Texas Boy I am ok with most of the traditional meals are see being pushed aside. Hopefully there is a innovative chef that will find a way to make meat & potatoes on-trend and fun!
