Chef's Special
Program Number


Series Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE's pioneering use of the "case study" approach to business documents high level decisions as they are taking place in the executive boardrooms. ENTERPRISE deliberately shows decision making processes as they occur. Business is treated as a human endeavor rather than an economic phenomenon. It goes beyond the statistics and charts to show real people making critical decisions and then bearing the consequences. ENTERPRISE benefits from the expertise of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration (as Harvard professors act as advisors to each program.) Ex Prod: Zvi Dor-Ner / Each individual episode has different producer Series release date: 10/1981

Program Description

Hoste by Eric Sevareid. An intriguing look at the planning, construction and opening of a new restaurant as David Garo Sokitch leaves a lucrative chef's position in San Francisco to take a chance as an owner in the high-risk, low-return restaurant business. Migrating from Yugoslavia in 1948, Sokitch was the head chef of SF's famous Tadich Grill for 17 years. At age 49, Sokitch strikes out on his own. Sokitch is dealing with every aspect of the restaurant himself-designing the kitchen and restaurant's interior, ordering equipment, talking to food and wine suppliers and designing menus.
