Phil (finally) joins Lindsay and the STUNNINGLY perfect Cynthia Wong (actually perfect in every way) in the studio to discuss why most diners hate waiting really normal amounts of time for food to be cooked in restaurants. Phil discovers an app that lets you virtually taste food. It’s really somethin’. Cynthia brings us a bucket of chicken and we can’t stop talking about it.
Suzanne Cupps is the Executive Chef of Danny Meyer’s ‘Untitled’ and she’s in the studio to talk pimento cheese, being from South Carolina and the perspective that a mentor can lend. Lindsay tells us about a new app that helps you un-complicate your recipes. It’s hard to describe.
Nick Curtola is the Chef at The Four Horsemen, (a restaurant brought to you by LCD Soundsystem-ish) and he has virtually cracked the code on the staffing crisis. The effortlessly approachable menu, charming space and super-natural wine list make it one of our most adored spots in all of Brooklyn. He joins us in the NoMad studio to talk creating restaurant culture, kids pasta and Lindsay tells us about a brand new restaurant that makes you feel like a baby again.
Our very first show from the New York City series is here. The Chef de Cuisine of Thomas Keller’s Per Se, Corey Chow joins us in the 10th floor studio at The NoMad hotel. We talk restaurant evolution, Rice-A-Roni, and we learn about a new device to keep your Mom honest.
The amazing Scott Blackwell of High Wire Distilling Co. joins Lindsay, Nikki and Phil in the studio to explain exactly how he ended up with 600ish pieces of rare Southern folk-art. He also just happened to be hanging out in Athens, Georgia in the early 80’s with a tape recorder and possesses a music nerds’ buried treasure chest of bootlegs from bands like R.E.M. Pylon, and the B-52s. Get your geek on. (part 2 airs next week.)
In 2010 Lindsay went to Rene Redzepi’s restaurant Noma in Copenhagen and took a tiny little handheld camera. She made this 18 minute short and while it feels more like a school project than an actual film, the footage is pretty rad.
