episode 120 :: ugly delicious

EToday we’re discussing Ugly Delicious, a Netflix show hosted by David Chang. Each episode of the show highlights a single dish, explores how it’s made, and how to tell if what you’re getting in your neck of the woods is authentic or a total fugazi. Ugly Delicious digs deep to explore the cultural, sociological, and culinary history of each popular dish.

episode 119 :: a meat free diet

EVegetarians had it right all along. Then, vegans came along and spoiled everything by being attention whores. The idea: If it comes from the ground, eat it. If it comes from an animal, don’t. Everyone has their reasons for excluding meat from their diet. Today, I explore the possibilities and the reasons why people make this radical change in their dietary lifestyle.

episode 118 :: elevated roast

EMy brother Chuck joins the show to discuss all things coffee as he launches his new coffee roasting company Elevated Roast. Like most artisans, his passion for roasting coffee started as a hobby over a decade ago and it didn't take long for that passion to turn into a profession. Chuck knows practically everything there is to know about what makes the difference between an acceptable roast and an exceptional roast. I can tell you with great certainty that his beans are the latter. Visit elevatedroast.com to order fresh roasted beans that will change your perspective on coffee.

episode 117 :: albert adria

EHe has lived in the shadow of his brother most of his life, and now he is building an empire of his own. For decades, when people thought of El Bulli, it was synonymous with Ferran Adria. But those who knew the inner workings of that project were well aware that it was Albert who was responsible for its success all along.

episode 116 :: the great mustard war

EOutside of the LeBron era, being a sports fan in Cleveland has been as enjoyable as a root canal. Thankfully, there's a great mustard war going on that makes an otherwise dreadful ballpark hot dog relatively gameworthy. Still reeling from Bourdain's death, I discuss some recent revelations that shed light on his possible motives for suicide. My brother will be my guest on the next episode, and we're talking really good coffee. I mean, REALLY GOOD COFFEE.

EEAT. RACE. WIN. is a behind-the-scenes adventure into the biggest annual sporting event in the world: The Tour de France. Yes, even bigger than the Super Bowl. The show follows Chef Hannah Grant, who takes us on her race within the race as she sources performance food for Australia's pro cycling team, Orica-Scott. Hannah shows us exactly what it takes to perform at the edge of human endurance for 21 days of racing - the hardest bike race in the world.

episode 114 :: legacy

EThe recent deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Jonathon Gold have left a void in the world of food writing and entertainment. Today I pay homage to both, but stress the importance of living in the moments they left behind. While it’s often thought to be unhealthy to live in the past, I wonder if it’s more unhealthy to live in the present, given the current climate.

episode 113 :: beer

EIt’s been over two years since I turned my back on the craft brew scene. In doing research for the show, I found that the landscape had changed drastically. The numbers are staggeringly high. What made the biggest impression on me, however, was the growth of home brewing. As of last November, there were an estimated 1.2 million people making beer at home. And while I know that a lot of you have dabbled in the craft of brewing beer at home, I think that if you truly love the taste of handcrafted beer, the time has never been better to get your feet wet and brew something delicious in your kitchen.
