Show 250, December 2, 2017: Show Preview with Co-Host Andy Harris

Now an enticing preview of this Saturday’s lush & abundant show. We’re with you live every Saturday morning throughout The Holidays. It’s not, with profuse apologies, for dieters. If we’re successful we will always leave you incredibly hungry and thirsty. In our case, upon careful reflection, that’s probably a pretty good thing…

Kitchen Creativity: Unlocking Culinary Genius—with Wisdom, Inspiration, and Ideas from the World’s Most Creative Chefs’ author Karen Page and photographer Andrew Dornenburg have been described as “perhaps the most influential and important of all food writers working today” (KLAV Radio), having created “many definitive guides” (Wall Street Journal) and “some of the most important books on cooking” (Good Food, KCRW/NPR), “making their mark with books that bring us inside the craft and life of America’s chefs and their restaurants” (The Splendid Table, NPR). Karen is our guest.

Executive Producer Andy Harris was in Roswell, GA (an incorporated City of 95,000 in the greater Atlanta area with a lot of living Civil War history) in early October with fellow members of the International Food Wine and Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA.) In this show we continue our coverage of the best of Roswell with a chat with the Producers & Co-Founders of the annual Roswell Wine Festival, an impressive, all-volunteer sip & stroll community effort that raises needed money in support of local non-profits.

On Friday, December 8th, starting at 6:30pm, Long Beach’s own Chef “T” Visoth Ouk (a spokeschef for Cambodia Town) will offer his second in a series of pop-up dinners featuring Cambodian favorites with a contemporary twist. The A Stroll Through Phnom Penh pop-up and Toy Drive in association with Dine LBC will feature passed appetizers and a four-course sit-down dinner, and also includes a glass of wine.

Chef Fred Ruiz is the Director of Operations for Kitchens & Restaurants at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa.. He joined the resort 12-years ago as Executive Chef. He’s received the prestigious Culinary Excellence Award from Marriott International three times! Las Casitas at The Marriott was just part of the nightly Gourmet Dine Around of the 23rd Festival Gourmet International with their Pacific Flavor Journey. We’ll meet Chef Ruiz.

Chef Richard Lombardi (a.k.a. “The Cancer – Fighting Chef”) has a joyful & inspirational story to share with us. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2009, underwent the difficult regimen of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and now is in remission. In all his research before (and during) treatment he came to realize that we all can make our cells potentially strong enough to resist the attack of abnormal cancer cells by preparing nutrient-rich recipes using cancer fighting ingredients. The result is Chef Richard’s new cookbook, The Cancer Fighting Cook – Cancer Fighter Packed Recipes for Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery. Chef Richard joins us in-studio.

All of this and heaping helpings of extra deliciousness on this week’s show!
