Show 44, October 19, 2013: Host Jet Tila and Producer Andy Harris

Host Jet Tila and Producer Andy Harris preview the show.

We had some particularly high profile culinary celebrities with us this week. Daniel Boulud (of his flagship Daniel in New York) is in Los Angeles the Week of Oct. 21st and we had him for a long, engaging chat discussing his new book, on keeping a classic French restaurant fresh and operating a new restaurant in Las Vegas.

Also when it comes to Thai food in America one of the leading authorities is Andy Ricker of Pok Pok in Portland and Brooklyn. He modestly does not profess to being an authority on Thai cuisine but Chef Jet feels otherwise. Surprisingly he’s not even Thai. Jet gets all the 411 from him on some of his signatures dishes and his love of all things Thai.
