Show 320, April 20, 2019: Show Preview with Co-Host Andy Harris

Now an enticing preview of Saturday’s delectable show. It’s not, with profuse apologies, for dieters. If we’re successful we will always leave you incredibly hungry and thirsty. In our case, and upon careful reflection, that’s probably a pretty good thing… As always, we greatly appreciate you being a part of our loyal listening audience.

The Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) is presenting their 2nd Annual Full Circle Benefit Dinner at Neal Fraser’s Redbird in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday evening, April 25th featuring a culinary brigade of celebrity guest chefs. C-CAP Council L.A.’s Chairperson, Barbara Fairchild (former Editor-in-Chief of Bon Appetit Magazine,) joins us with all the salivating details of the Cocktail Reception and seated Dinner & Live Auction.

Born and raised in Columbia, Winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez Rave had little exposure to wine culture but, by the age of 14, she knew she would become a winemaker. Bibiana joins us to share her incredible journey. In 2015 she was named “Winemaker of the Year” by the San Francisco Chronicle.

For most it wasn’t so much the actual cooking that was a problem: it was the hour plus of organization, prepping and cleaning up. So, a teacher at heart, Carla Snyder wrote One Pan Two Plates: More than 70 complete weeknight meals for two, a guide to a delicious, healthy, hot meal for two in under 45 minutes with easy prep and one pan cleanup. Carla’s most recent release is One Pan Whole Family: More than 70 complete weeknight mealsThis is a book for families who would like to embrace a diet of wholesome meats, poultry, fish, vegetables and grains. Carla escapes the kitchen and is our guest.

Robert Biebrich is the Executive Chef for Legends here at Angel Stadium. Chef Robert is with us in-studio to highlight what’s new in Angel Stadium food and beverage for the 2019 season. He’s particularly proud of the Big A Burger which is a luxe burger creation as well as a new food outlet. Did we hear “Secret Menu”? Joining Chef Robert is his Executive Sous Chef Omar Almaraz and Executive Pastry Chef Tracy Felipe.

Chef Thomas Ortega (Playa Amor Mexican Cocina and Amor Y Tacos Mexican Kitchen & Cantina) recently launched his fourth restaurant in SoCal, and this time it’s his first fast-casual concept: AMORCITO Urban Taqueria. Credited as one of the innovators of the Modern Mexican and pocho cuisine food movements, Ortega’s goal is to bring more quality Modern Mexican/ pocho cuisine to the Southland at an affordable price point with his new interpretation of the urban taqueria in Long Beach at Hangar at Long Beach Exchange. We’ll meet Chef Thomas.

Easter and Passover good wishes to all.

All of this and heaping helpings of extra deliciousness on this week’s not-to-miss show!
