Celebrity chef reveals inflated price of this good will 'creep up on you'
David Burke admits inflated price of this good will ‘creep up on you’
Celebrity chef David Burke argues people are ‘coming in and spending’ despite rising prices.
As inflation hovers over 40-year-highs, the price of food has shocked some of the biggest names in the restaurant industry.
"Surprisingly, produce is high," Celebrity chef David Burke revealed while discussing the impact of inflation on the industry Thursday on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
Like other chefs, Burke admitted that he doesn’t often monitor the cost of produce in comparison to meats and other main entrée must-haves.
"You know, we're looking at what's the meat cost per pound, what's a rib eye, what is a shrimp, what is the beef — but produce will creep up on you," Burke explained, noting that the cost of produce has doubled since pre-pandemic.
"A container of produce used to cost $7,500 to bring in two years ago before the pandemic. Now it's 15,000," he mentioned surprisingly.
