This will sound like a sweeping statement but this episode with Tamara Reynolds of the fabled supper club “The Sunday Night Dinner in Astoria” and creator of Van Alst Kitchen is one of my favorite episodes in the history of Effin B Radio. She has had a fascinating career, endless stories and is truly hilarious and basically my new best friend. In addition to being a Cookbook Author and professional food stylist for film and television she was a host for Cooking Channel’s “Unique Eats” and we talk about getting fired, our mentors and so much more. Don’t miss it.
I invite a couple of pros on to help make Thanksgiving less awful for all of you seasoned vets and terrified first-timers alike. Hayley Feldman of Chez Tex in Venice, CA and Alfia Muzio of Vestal Life in NYC bring all of their incredible insight to tackle questions that range from “Should I brine my turkey?” to “Is Pie Dough Out Of My League?”. I am always so thankful for you, Dear Listener, and hope this helps in some small way. ❤️ Lindsay

Your old pal Lindsay is teaming up Hayley Feldman and Alfia Muzio (two extremely qualified professionals) to tackle your Thanksgiving game plan no matter what your Turkey Day is looking like this year.

ALSO the incredibly noble Palmetto Pastures here in Charleston is closing their gates but has tons of beautiful inventory ranging from eggs, beef, pork, goat and more. Let’s give them the send off they deserve by buying up their exceptional product. (trust me you’re going to need it for this Holiday Season) You can check out their inventory here:
Lindsay shares a new Halloween sketch on this months DIGIRIP, tells stories of her childhood halloweens gone by, gives you her favorite apple pie recipe (from Pies and Thighs in Brooklyn) and falls madly in love with Doughboyz Pizza. OH and she challenges us all to think of Steamed Artichokes as the oyster of the plant world.
Lindsay has a record breaking ear infection and takes Nyquil ( the RECOMMENDED DOSE..relax) seconds before recording this very brief episode about why you should always experiment in the kitchen.
Lindsay interviews the brilliant Vivian Howard on today’s episode. They talk about everything from her forthcoming book “This Will Make It Taste Good” to her early years cooking in NYC and of course the brand new concept in Charleston: Handy and Hot. She’s rad and this conversation is fun from the very beginning.

Lindsay watches a movie she doesn’t understand and makes a brownie sundae. Don’t worry Vivian Howard is on next week. (seriously)
Lindsay gets taken on an epic date by Nikki Fairman and lives to tell the tale. (NOTE: I am deeply sorry for the snap-crackle-popping on this episode. I had a bad mic cord and didn’t know until I had finished recording. Please forgive this assault on your lovely ears)
