Show 197, November 12, 2016: Show Preview with Executive Producer & Co-Host Andy Harris

Be listening for your chance next Saturday morning, Nov. 19th to win our VIP Brunch for 2 package at SideDoor on December 3rd at 10:00 a.m. SideDoor is graciously throwing us a party to celebrate the show’s 4th Anniversary. We’ll be broadcasting live from SideDoor that morning.

Now a provocatively tempting preview of Saturday’s full-measure show and not, with profuse apologies, for dieters. If we’re successful we will always leave you incredibly hungry and thirsty. In our case that’s actually a pretty good thing…

The Ment’or BKB Foundation (founded by Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller and Jerome Bocuse) supports Team USA at the bi-annual Bocuse d’Or International Culinary Competition and mentors up-and-coming culinary talent in the USA. Earlier this year Chef Vincenzo Loseto of The Nomad in New York won the prestigious honors as the 2016 Young Chef. He’s been on quite a ride since then. We’ll meet him.

One of our favorite guests of 2016 is the always-opinionated Meathead Goldwyn, the founder of, the hugely popular grilling and barbecue website. He’s also known as the barbecue whisperer. His new book is Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling. Meathead joins us with some unexpected but hugely practical tips for preparing the Thanksgiving feast.

Bravo’s “Top Chef” Season 10 alum Brooke Williamson and her husband/co-chef Nick Roberts have debuted in Playa Vista their 4th restaurant. It’s the fast-casual, Hawaiian-themed, street-food oriented, Da Kikokiko. Chef Brooke joins us to share the inviting aloha spirit.

Tequila can only come from certain areas of Mexico and the State of Jalisco is famous for their blue agave which is the base for authentic Tequila. The Marriott Resort CasaMagna has a resident Tequila Sommelier and a fascinating Tequila program. We’ll meet her. Bring on the aged Anejo.

All of this and lots more absolutely incredible deliciousness on Saturday’s show!
