When a passion enters your life and, shall we say, “takes over”. You have two choices to make. The first and most obvious choice for most of us missing the enterprise gene is to let the moment pass then see what it feels like in the cold light of morning. Whether or not it was a good idea. The second choice, and the one followed by those who are truly blessed with the industry gene. Is to follow the passion wherever it leads you. For Charlie Torgerson his “passion” awakened and first led him to Alaska then into a life heavily shrouded in spice rubs, sauces and wood smoke.
