Food

It started with host Joe Ricchio and a diverse group of guests having a discussion revolving around a simple food theme that almost everyone has a strong opinion about. It has now evolved into an entirely different animal that, while still food-centric, can branch out into very unexpected territory.

Episodes

In this episode, I sit down with chef and cookbook writer Annie Mahle to talk about life as a cook on the high seas. I dazzle her with my nautical vernacular, and in return, she tells a few stories which tie directly into her newest release, The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook.

In this episode, I sit down with cookbook author Mindy Fox to talk about the process of writing a cookbook, what makes a proper salad, and properly roasted chicken. These are all important things for you to know about, which can hardly be said for my rant about the Deal-A-Meal diet by RIchard Simmons. Also, be sure to pick up her newest book, Let's Do Dinner - her second collaboration with Queer Eye's Antoni Porowski.

In this episode, I sit down with husband and wife team Vince Maniaci and Jill Dutton, owners of The Cheese Iron in Scarborough, Maine. I suppose, in essence, it's more of a love letter from me to them, which ends with Vince stealing a car (in turn, reassuring Jill of his dangerous side). It's a journey of redemption for all of us. Plus, we talk about cheese. Also, we eat cheese.... and there are these little fucking chocolate. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

In this episode, I sit down with Krista Kern Desjarlais, chef and owner of The Purple House, as well as Bresca & The Honey Bee. She also operated one of the most well-regarded and missed Portland eateries, Bresca. We delve into her professional restaurant career - past, present, and future. I confess to my love of white chocolate. It's very exciting. You'll love it. Please enjoy.

In this episode, chef and entrepreneur Josh Potocki begins with describing his personal journey, before we start waxing nostalgic about the golden age of decadence. Well, for us anyway. It was our scene, different from now - not that there is anything wrong with the current state of affairs. I think it's part of getting old when terms like "Pop-Up" can't help but solicit a huge eye roll. Also if you can take away anything from this episode, it's that your event will inevitably be a lot less cool once you lose control of the guest list. Plus the world started going downhill once "Everyone" was now considered a "Winner." Lastly, we kill some deer. For a good cause. 

Also - we celebrate our two new sponsors - The Dunstan Tap & Table as well as Legent Bourbon. You can find the recipe for the drink we discuss here. Also a reminder about our patreon (link below)!

In this episode I hook up with restaurateur and food writer Malcolm Bedell. If you’re looking for a conversation about haute cuisine, you’ve come to the right place. Fake banana flavor, Little Debbie, the Filet-O-Fish, and an exploration into classic model Huffy bikes. Also, we discuss our mutual disdain for people who ride tandem bikes. 

Also we celebrate our two new sponsors - The Dunstan Tap & Table as well as Legent Bourbon. You can find the recipe for the drink we discuss here.

In this episode, I get together with longtime friend Lacey Burke to talk about her experience in the Champagne business. This, of course, leads to the relentless string of diversions and tangents you've come to love (hopefully) and expect (at least) from this show. Scarface, why I don't like horror films, food poisoning stories, and Halloween are a few topics that just barely scratch the surface. 

Also, there are two OUTSTANDING cameos by a local car horn, who just wanted to let us know they were there and not to forget about them.

In this episode, I get together with my friend and culinary legend, Chef Rob Evans. Most people know him for winning the James Beard Award, being one of Food & Wines Best New Chefs, and winning on Chopped. 

We delve into the past's food world contrasted with the present, and then we predict the future - because we know everything. Obviously.

In this episode, I head out into the woods of Buxton, Maine to chat with radio personality and producer, Chris Sedenka. Initially, we were going to be talking all things BBQ, but per usual we branch off into all kinds of tangents. I had a blast hanging out with Chris, and I hope you enjoy the show as much as I do.

I know that, as of today, the world seems like a crazy fucking place. The one thing that we have to cope with this is wine. All morning, all afternoon, and all night. I meet up with one of my new favorite people, wine writer Jim Laughren, and we get right into it.  Please enjoy.
