Greetings, and now a mouthwatering preview of Saturday’s high octane show and not, with apologies, for dieters. With any luck we will always leave you hungry and thirsty. In our case that’s probably a good thing…
We respectfully again move aside this morning for Notre Dame football at 11:30 a.m.
The proudly Family-owned Terlato Wine Group is a holding company for several independent businesses specializing in the marketing and production of exceptional wines. They are probably best known for pioneering the popularity of Pinot Grigio in the United States. Representing the 2nd generation of Family ownership is John Terlato, our guest.
The Habit Burger Grill (which started locally in Santa Barbara in 1969) partnered with No Kid Hungry for the month of September to raise funds to wipe out childhood hunger in the United States. A minimum of $200,000 will be contributed. The Habit’s Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Hood, joins us with all the joyful details.
Rejoice. It’s National Seafood Month. Mussels seem to be the forgotten and underappreciated mollusk in the United States. They are incredibly popular in Europe. The meat is tougher than a oyster or clam but it’s still delicious with a mildly sweet flavor. Great health benefits, too. Our resident seafood authority and co-host, Chef Andrew Gruel, will spread the joy of mussels. They are really good eating. There is life beyond oysters !
The Wolfgang Puck of Northern Baja is acclaimed Chef Javier Plascencia. Savvy Southern Californians have enjoyed dining at both Romesco in Bonita and Mision 19 in Tijuana. His newest restaurant, Bracero Cocina de Raiz is located in San Diego’s Little Italy. He’s been all over Food TV including visits with Anthony Bourdain and Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern. His General Manager and Sommelier at Bracero, JM Woody van Horn is our guest.
All of this and lots more absolutely incredible deliciousness on Saturday’s show!
