Food for Thought
A Working Man’s Guide to Life
Richard Todd Canton describes himself as a working man. Never one to sit around for long periods of time, he’s made a habit of keeping busy—and paying attention. He entered the working world at twelve, when he stepped through the back door of a restaurant and asked for a job.
Since then, he’s learned from some masters and has applied that knowledge to every aspect of his life. Along the way, he’s also met some interesting characters—and you’ll meet many of them in this collection of anecdotes from his colorful and unusual life.
As one of nine children, he learned early on that the observant person can find inspiration in every person he encounters. His brother, seven sisters, and widowed mother were among the first to inspire him.
This memoir invites you to join him on a journey through life, love, and other lessons. He shares some of the experiences and lessons he learned growing up in the food business (and in business in general). You’ll meet some intriguing characters who have influenced Canton in one way or the other; you might even recognize yourself or your friends within the tales.
Take a journey with him back through time as you meet some of the magnificent people who have made an impact on his life.
