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.
WHAT’S FOR FAMILY MEAL IS BACK! Lindsay calls up Braydon Sutherland in Paris, FR at the iconic Chez la Vieille and he gives us the skinny on his last six months living abroad. AND Lindsay finally drops the super secret, super rad announcement (it’s pretty epic…listen to the end) and reads a listener letter on air.
Lindsay dies a zillion deaths after being listed on Cherry Bombe’s 100. She ponders creating a new charity for people to eat white truffles after an extraordinary lunch at Le Farfalle and our SUPER SPECIAL GUEST OF HONOR is none other than Sara Licklider, co-owner of Lioco Wine Co. It’s an action packed show people!
It’s the first episode of Season IV! The show starts off with a wildly bittersweet announcement. (It’s way bigger and more bitter than you’re even guessing) Then, Lindsay introduces a new segment called “What’s For Family Meal?” where we find out what the super-fancy team at Bell’s in Los Alamos, CA is slurping down between services AND the one and only chef/owner duo Nayda Freire and Evan Gaudreau are in the studio talking about RENZO. Plus, we get into what weird voodoo is behind the recent string of restaurant closings in Charleston. It’s good to be back.
The incredible Angie Tunstall is a co-owner of Stems and Skins (our favorite wine bar in all the land) and a total badass. She joins the gang in the studio on a this freaky Friday to talk cheesecake, what to do with all that leftover bread and iberico ham fat one accumulates by running said “badass bar” and how she approaches staffing in this rapidly changing industry. Lindsay finds a new tool to help you figure out what to do with your life, happy Friday the 13th ya big weirdos!
Katy Keefe joins the gang to talk dessert pizzas, what she would bring to a Memorial Day bbq and the “dark web”. Phil has an idea for a way to keep front of house folks interested during line-up.
The gang is back in the studio to talk this years James Beard Awards and…..pickles? Yeah I guess the show was mostly about pickles.
Gabrielle Hamilton is the guest and our lives will never be the same. This episode is the most staggering and humbling honor for the gang and a super-fun 50ish minutes with GH being incredible and us trying not to blow it.
