For over 25 years, Chris Becicka has combined business, writing, and food. A founding partner of two companies after she gave up a corporate career, she is now devoting her time to eating out, happily devouring all kinds of food, and writing about her experiences. A long-sitting food critic on The Walt Bodine Show, now called Central Standard Fridays on NPR, she reviews restaurants with a fresh eye and still not jaded taste buds. She is the co-author of You Can’t Kill all the Men, Recipes for Leadership, a book that combines leadership lessons and a love of food (with recipes), available on Amazon.


Behind the rooster

My name is Laurent Denis, native from France, I was born in Bordeaux - the wine region! I met my wife, Kathy in France in 1989 and we moved back to Kansas City in 1995. 
In 1997, we decided to create the Restaurant Guide of KC™ and since we have been publishing it. 
We love food and to travel. 2 years ago, we created Global Culinary Escapades to do just that as we give our guests more than their dream of France - visit

Bon Appétit!
