Lindsay is joined by a VERY SPECIAL SECRET GUEST.
I tease out some fun new video content that’s in the works and laugh about one listener who messaged me saying they wished that I still did the podcast. (Spoiler Alert: I do “still do the podcast”).
After some technical difficulties I have to re-record this episode and come up with a whole new show on the fly and….well…it shows. I lament about how hard it is to make a kid’s birthday cake and ramble on about sweet potato pie.
I do whatever it takes to get a TOMATO TARTE TATIN from FIG and lament about a cake I made that fell. Plus! I use my super sleuth skills to try and figure out who is behind all these exciting new pop ups.
I’ve really been making up for lost time and hitting up lots of places to eat. Some of the highlights include BAR ROLLINS, BAR GEORGE, EL MOLINO AND BABAS ON CANNON to name a few. Plus, I mull over why Charleston’s Food Critic leaving her post wasn’t a bigger story?
I finally muster up the energy to record an episode in 2021. My old pal Joe Nierstedt and my new pal Kev Nierstedt come on the show to discuss their pop-up KATSUBŌ (which I am currently obsessed with. I have nearly perfect attendance!) We talk what makes a ramen broth different from a tradtional stock and how they decided on their John’s Island Hot Chicken concept, Kinfolk. Joe and I are old friends from the NYC days of yore and we touch on why working in restaurants (even fancy ones!) doesn’t actually prepare you for running you own business, like, at all..
Here’s what I order at KATSUBŌ:
Shoyu (Chicken) Ramen add Kimchi and a seasoned egg, Hot Chicken Katsu ( I LOVE CHICKEN OK?) + a coke.
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 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)
