The discussion touched on their backgrounds, their careers and making names for themselves before social media. Junior Joshua Kapelmen commented via twitter:

This talk with @tuftsculinary is one of the best I’ve been to at Tufts. Puck, Boulud and Barber talking about entrepreneurship and life

Following the discussion, those lucky enough to get tickets enjoyed a brunch in the Coolidge Room of Ballou Hall. Chef Daniel Boulud snapped a few photos at the brunch, including this one of his daughter Alix, a current Tufts undergrad.
