In this cookout episode of Chewing the Fat Louisa and I talk about our late night Korean galbi dinner years ago with chef Marco Pierre White, His temper was almost as hot as the meat on our grill that he turned with his bare hands. https://soundcloud.com/chewingthefat/ctf-ep-26-cookout
This morning I (Monica) did an interview for WBEZ at Goodness Greenness the biggest distributor of organic produce in the Midwest. What does it say about our society that this mecca of sustainable produce is located in the middle of a Chicago neighborhood whose grocery stores look like this?
I (Monica) made this crisp juicy chicken the other night with Thomas Keller’s fabulous high-heat Bouchon recipe. But I skipped the part of about rinsing the bird. I wish you would, too. Washing the chicken just spreads campylobacter (found on 70 percent of US chickens) all over the place. So stop it. http://www.rodalenews.com/rinsing-poultry
What’s your favorite hot sauce, you know like the one you buy in the 8.5 gallon size? Louisa Chu and Monica Eng will be talking fiery sauces on WBEZ’s The Afternoon Shift Wednesday as a lead up to July 4.
On this bonus WBEZ Pledge Drive Chewing the Fat special, hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng are back from tasting the future of food!
